A view of world history in 13 parts by JOHN ROBERTS 5: East of Europe
Is Russia a part of the West? When the Moors were driven out of Christendom in the 15th century the boundaries of European civilisation in the West were clearly defined - by the sea. But in the East the plains roll away into Asia and there are few natural frontiers.
John Roberts looks beyond Cold War definitions as he considers how Byzantines, Bulgars, Ottoman Turks,
Slavs and Mongols all made their mark on Europe in the East and contributed to the Russian enigma. Russia would develop an autocracy with its roots in Byzantium and adopt a political philosophy with its origins in the European Enlightenment and Jewish philosophy;
Marxism. 'In Europe we are Asiatics,' wrote Dostoevsky, 'but in Asia we are
Europeans.'
