Book Description 
  
For the first time, the Russian news agency TASS has opened its complete photographic archives to create an unprecedented and uncensored look at the last 100 years of life in the Soviet Union and the new Russia. Featuring more than 300 astonishing photographs many never before published these images capture the daily life of a people through the dramatic sweep of Russian history, from royalty to revolution and the rise and fall of communism. Illuminated by informative essays and extended captions that provide context on the times and the photographs, this is the definitive visual record of Russian history as seen through Russian eyes.
