Appeared in Choice on 1990-04:
This lavishly illustrated reference book combines geographical, historical, and regional studies covering Russia and the Soviet Union from earliest times to the present. The atlas features 295 illustrations (214 in color) and 46 maps, including those devoted to geographic features, languages, and historical periods all the way from 10th-century Eastern Europe and Byzantium to Central Asia today. The volume also features some two dozen special sections on a variety of topics, such as Scythian Gold, the great age of Russian art, 1812, pre-Revolutionary peasant life, religion in the Soviet Union, and the cities of Moscow and Leningrad. Combined with all of this is a splendid grab bag of extras, including wonderful endpapers, a glossary, a gazetteer, a bibliography, a list of rulers, a chronological table, and an index. Aimed at the general reader, the atlas is easy to use, informative, and entertaining. Recommended for both public and academic libraries. -S. C. Summer, Columbia University
