Product Description:

Russian-American Dialogue on the American Revolution is the second volume to be published in the Russian-American Dialogues series. Written by some of the most highly respected Russian historians of our time, including Nikolai N. Bolkhovitonov, Gennadi P. Kuropiatnik, Boris M. Shpotov, and V. L. Ushakov, this is a collection of essays on topics pertaining to the American Revolution--the single most important event in American history. Many Russian scholars have studied the American Revolution because they believe it is what has linked together the destinies of the American people and the people of the former Soviet Union through much of the twentieth century.

Each Russian essay is followed by a commentary from a noted American historian of the American Revolution, such as Jack P. Greene, Ronald Hoffman, James A. Henretta, and Pauline Maier. Most of the Russian authors, in turn, respond to the American critiques, a few of them quite strongly. These rebuttals are included with the essays and responses, resulting in a fascinating critical dialogue between the West and the East.

Many of the Russian historians have written on the same subjects that American historians have examined: the politics of the Continental Congress, the Articles of Confederation, Shays's Rebellion, and the ideas and activities of the Founding Fathers. However, a significant difference between the Russian and the American approaches to the subjects and events of the Revolution is seen in the frequent Russian application of Marxist principles to the subjects under discussion. American historians will find it fascinating to see their own history from this different perspective.

Russian-American Dialogue on the American Revolution, standing as the latest and most highly regarded expressions of contemporary Russian scholarship on the American Revolution, will be an invaluable historical resource, as well as engrossing reading for general readers with a special interest in the American-Russian connection.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”.

9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
