The Fractured Windows to the West: Sunshine and Shadow: The Pillars of Russia's History Summary

The Fractured Windows to the West: Sunshine and Shadow: The Pillars of Russia's History by Melvyn Weissman

The Pillars of Russia's History introduces the reader to Russia's history and, when appropriate, offers alternative explanations for the course that Russia traveled and how that differentiates its history from that of the West. The publication promotes debate and dialogue by re-evaluating earlier hypotheses.

The Pillars of Russia's History addresses cultural and social change and how they evolved differently or similarly from Russia's neighbors to the West. The publication includes the geography of Russia along with an analysis of history from pre-history to current day.
