The Cambridge Economic History by Walter Scheidel+

The Cambridge Economic History of the Greco-Roman World by Walter Scheidel, Ian Morris, Richard P. Saller
Requirements: PDF reader, 6.1 MB
Overview: The first comprehensive survey of the economies of classical antiquity.
In this, the first comprehensive one-volume survey of the economies of classical antiquity, twenty-eight chapters summarise the current state of scholarship in their specialised fields and sketch new directions for research. The approach taken is both thematic, with chapters on the underlying determinants of economic performance, and chronological, with coverage of the whole of the Greek and Roman worlds extending from the Aegean Bronze Age to Late Antiquity. The contributors move beyond the substantivist-formalist debates that dominated twentieth-century scholarship and display a new interest in economic growth in antiquity. New methods for measuring economic development are explored, often combining textual and archaeological data that have previously been treated separately. Fully accessible to non-specialist, the volume represents a major advance in our understanding of the economic expansion that made the civilisation of the classical Mediterranean world possible.

The Cambridge History of Russia, Volume 2: Imperial Russia, 1689-1917 by Dominic Lieven
Requirements: .PDF reader, 7.8 mb
Overview: The second volume of The Cambridge History of Russia covers the imperial period (1689-1917). It encompasses political, economic, social, cultural, diplomatic, and military history. All the major Russian social groups have separate chapters and the volume also includes surveys on the non-Russian peoples and the government’s policies towards them. It addresses themes such as women, law, the Orthodox Church, the police and the revolutionary movement. The volume’s seven chapters on diplomatic and military history, and on Russia’s evolution as a great power, make it the most detailed study of these issues available in English. The contributors come from the USA, UK, Russia and Germany: most are internationally recognised as leading scholars in their fields, and some emerging younger academics engaged in cutting-edge research have also been included. No other single volume in any language offers so comprehensive, expert and up-to-date an analysis of Russian history in this period.

The Cambridge History of Russia, Volume 1 by Maureen Perrie

The Cambridge History of Russia, Volume 1: From Early Rus to 1689 by Maureen Perrie
Requirements: .PDF reader, 10.4 mb
Overview: This first volume of the Cambridge History of Russia covers the period from early (‘Kievan’) Rus’ to the start of Peter the Great’s reign in 1689. It surveys the development of Russia through the Mongol invasions to the expansion of the Muscovite state in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and deals with political, social, economic and cultural issues under the Riurikid and early Romanov rulers. The volume is organised on a primarily chronological basis, but a number of general themes are also addressed, including the bases of political legitimacy; law and society; the interactions of Russians and non-Russians; and the relationship of the state with the Orthodox Church. The international team of authors incorporates the latest Russian and Western scholarship and offers an authoritative new account of the formative ‘pre-Petrine’ period of Russian history, before the process of Europeanisation had made a significant impact on society and culture.
