Product Description

Review

"Strengths: ? for my purposes, the general narrative approach and ability of the authors to summarize complex developments concisely."

"Your textbook makes my teaching easier because I have tried others and have found that students will generally read yours while they refuse to read others."

"The historiographical debates at the end of some chapters presented as 'Problems' are tremendously helpful in getting students not only to engage the history but the historiography as well."

"In selecting a text I look for a balanced approach with political, economic, social and cultural history intertwined. I also look for attention to women, peasants, workers, and 'minority' groups. This text does a better job than most with all of these."

Graduating from the Russian Institute of Columbia University in 1953, he began teaching history and Russian language at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and received his Ph.D. degree from Columbia in 1962. He taught Russian and European history at Princeton University (1959-1961), Wells College (1961-1968), then as a full professor at the University of North Carolina Greensboro starting in 1969, retiring in July 2000. For his scholarly research, MacKenzie received grants from the Ford Foundation, American Council of Learned Societies, and the International Research and Exchanges Board. In 1988 he was elected to the Serbian Academy of Sciences for his writings on Serbian history. Married to Patricia Williams in 1953, he has three grown sons. MacKenzie's published works include THE SERBS AND RUSSIAN PAN-SLAVISM 1875-1878 (1967); THE LION OF TASHKENT: THE CAREER OF GENERAL M. G.

Mostly for research, MacKenzie visited Serbia 16 times and Russia 7 times, and is fluent in Russian, Serbian, German, and French. He lives in retirement with his wife, Patricia, in Greensboro, North Carolina. Michael W.
