Salem Press: The Reference Shelf

From the Preface:

“Russia is a complex nation with a rich and colorful history. It is a land that spans two continents, 14 countries, and nine time zones. It stretches from Europe in the west to China in the east, and its more than 145 million inhabitants represent some 160 ethnicities. Western Russia holds the bulk of the populace and boasts a very European culture. Eastern Russia, composed mostly of Siberia, is home to Lapps and Eskimos . . .”
