Russia is situated astride Europe and Asia. As such, both Western (European) and Asian (Occidental) cultural influences have interacted to make the nation a unique blend of diverse cultural extremes. This has made Russia very difficult for Westerners to understand. Winston Churchill described Russia as an enigma wrapped in a paradox.

Despite these difficulties, understanding Russia is important to Western European historians. Russia is still a major power on the world stage. It is also a significant factor in the new independent nations that were once part of the greater Russian/Soviet empire.

Where additional information about the contents of the article is available, the author provides a short description. Most references, however, involve little more than the title of the work, the author, and whatever references are available to identify the work. …
