About this product
- DescriptionIn this revision of their best-selling text, MacKenzie and Curran present a clear and objective account of the history of Russians and other eastern Slavs from its beginnings in ancient Rus to the demise of the Soviet Union and, most recently, the Putin presidency. Acclaimed in the field for its clarity, comprehensiveness, and accuracy, the text balances social/cultural history with political history. The authors' approach weaves the external geographic determinism of the Eurasian school and the organic, inner-oriented approach of Russian historians.
- Author BiographyDr. David MacKenzie, Professor Emeritus at the University of North Carolina Greensboro, received his B.A. degree in history at the University of Rochester in 1951, after service in the U.S. Army in Germany.

In 1988 he was elected to the Serbian Academy of Sciences for his writings on Serbian history. Married to Patricia Williams in 1953, he has three grown sons.
