This introductory survey course will explore the complex, evolving encounters of Russia & Europe, and the Soviet Union & the United States, from ancient times to the present. In its thousand-year history, Russia has occupied a unique position between Europe and Asia; both Russians and foreign observers have wrestled with defining its place vis-à-vis western civilization. Particular emphasis will be given to the complicated relationship of Putin's Russia with America today.
