20th-century Russian history comes to life through six generations of a family in their Moscow apartment
The Apartment: A Century of Russian History explains the true
history of 20th-century Russia through the fictitious story of a Moscow
family and their apartment. The Muromtsev family have been living in the
same apartment for more than a century, generation after generation.
Readers are taken through different rooms and witness how each
generation actually lived alongside the larger social and political
changes that Russia experienced. A search-and-find element has readers
looking for objects from page to page to see which items were passed
down through the generations. Beautifully illustrated with minute
details, this book helps readers engage with Russia's history in an all
new way. The book includes a timeline, glossary, bibliography, and
index.
