Companion to Russian History by Prof. Abbott Gleason Companion to Russian History, Paperback (December 2013)

This companion comprises 28 essays by international scholars offering an analytical overview of the development of Russian history from the earliest Slavs through to the present day.

On Nineteen Eighty-Four by Prof. Abbott Gleason On Nineteen Eighty-Four, Paperback (May 2005)

The Cold War that has so often been linked to Orwell's novel ended with more of a whimper than a bang, but most of the issues of concern to him remain alive in some form today: censorship, scientific surveillance, power worship, the autonomy of art, the meaning of democracy, relations between men and women, and many others.

Grid and the Village by Prof. Abbott Gleason Grid and the Village, Hardback (October 2001)

In January 1998 a great ice storm crushed power grids in New York, New England and eastern Canada. In this insider's account of these events, the author describes the destruction of the electric network in his own village and illuminates the relationship between electronic and human connections.

Nikita Krushchev by Prof. Abbott Gleason Nikita Krushchev, Hardback (June 2000)

Thanks to Soviet secrecy, little was known about former premier Khrushchev during his career or after his ousting. Since the collapse of the USSR, archives have been declassified, allowing access to his memoirs and those of witnesses. A team including his son Sergei present their findings here.
