Instructor: Carol Zink 

Tuesdays, 1 – 3 PM  | October 5 – November 9

In this fast-paced survey of Russian history we study the major Czars from Peter the Great to the last Czar, Nicholas II; the origins and outcomes of the Russian Revolutions; the USSR from Lenin to the breakup of the Soviet Union; the chaos of the Yeltsin years; and finally the rise and continuing reign of Putin. Along the way we look at the social, political, and economic policies of the various eras, and Russia’s interactions with the world beyond its borders.
