Professor Janet Hartley

I have been studying and teaching Russian history for about thirty-five years. I have written several books and many articles and chapters in books. My most recent book (published in 2021) is a history of the Volga river, from the seventh century to the present day, entitled. The Volga. A History of Russia’s Greatest River
