Posted on August 13, 2020


A plug for G Waugh’s book version of his essays on Russia…

I would like to announce the launching of my first book – THE LAST EMPIRE – A Short History of Twentieth Century Russia. It is a collection of fifteen essays that chronicle the history of Russia/USSR from 1917 till 1991. The origin and ideas behind contemporary political terms- Communism, Capitalism, Fascism, the Left, the Right have been introduced and explained in sufficient measure. It also contains two chapters on the influence of Soviet Russia on the history of India.
