Hybrid Book Discussion – Lost Kingdom: The Quest for Empire and the Making of the Russian Nation (2017)
November 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Join Chester County History Center book discussion about thought-provoking history books and connect with others in the community.
In Lost Kingdom, award-winning historian Serhii Plokhy argues that we can only understand the confluence of Russian imperialism and nationalism today by delving into the nation’s history. Spanning over 500 years, from the end of the Mongol rule to the present day, Plokhy shows how leaders from Ivan the Terrible to Joseph Stalin to Vladimir Putin exploited existing forms of identity, warfare, and territorial expansion to achieve imperial supremacy.
