Cambridge History of Russia: Volume 1, From Early Rus' to 1689 by Maureen Perrie
Book DescriptionThis first volume of the Cambridge History of Russia covers the period from early ('Kievan') Rus' to the start of Peter the Great's reign in 1689. It surveys the development of Russia through the Mongol invasions to the expansion of the Muscovite state in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and deals with political, social, economic and cultural issues under the Riurikid and early Romanov rulers. The volume is organised on a primarily chronological basis, but a number of general themes are also addressed, including the bases of political legitimacy; law and society; the interactions of Russians and non-Russians; and the relationship of the state with the Orthodox Church. The international team of authors incorporates the latest Russian and Western scholarship and offers an authoritative new account of the formative 'pre-Petrine' period of Russian history, before the process of Europeanisation had made a significant impact on society and culture.

Ivan the Terrible, Paperback (August 2003)» View all books by Maureen Perrie
Presenting a re-assessment of Ivan the Terrible, this work examines the ways in which his policies contributed to the creation of Russia's distinctive system of unlimited monarchical rule. It argues that the often gruesome forms assumed by the terror reflected not only his personal cruelty and sadism, but also his religious views.
