|Long Description||36 lectures on the History of Modern Russia. Poets, Politicians, Workers, Thinkers: History through Biography In this course with Professor Mark Steinberg you examine the last 300 years of Russian history through the eyes of its people. You find historical themes made clear not by discussing treaties or war declarations or economic statistics but by examining the lives and ideas of the men and women who, in fact, were Russia. Professor Steinberg is one of this country's leading specialists on Russia and its culture. He is Director of the Russian and East European Center, designated as a national resource center by the Department of Education. He is a recent winner of an Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award from the University of Illinois. In these 36 lectures he brings alive the themes and ideas that have shaped Russia's passionate and often tormented story and equips you to better interpret contemporary events. "Russia's history," says Professor Steinberg, "is a story of people's efforts to discern life's fundamental meaning, as well as a story of their uncertainty and confusion. It is a story of people's efforts to create a society built on principles of right and justice, as well as a story of evil and injustice. It is a story about human imagination and creativity, as well as a story of great tragedy." You meet tsars, emperors, Communist party leaders, writers, artists, peasants, and factory workers. Art, passion, brilliant thinking, high society, and joy all thrived amidst political upheaval and years of uprisings, terror, and war.|
