As students in Kathleen Macfies’ Introduction to Russian Studies course, we have learned, processed, and evaluated information that pertains to the history, geography, and culture of Russia. This Casebook has been designed to give a general overview of Russia and how it relates to the rest of the world.
In this Casebook, you will find profiles of famous Russian figures from a variety of different backgrounds such as Popular Culture, Entertainment, Politics, Sports, and History. We have also provided a brief History of Russia along with current articles which display Russia’s prominence in the world at present.
It is our hope that you enjoy the style in which our Casebook is presented and find the information provided to be helpful in understanding the rich history and culture of Russia.
