A. M. SAKHAROV. The Problem of the Rise and Development of the Centralized Russian State in Soviet Historiography
The author sums up certain results of research carried on by Soviet historians over many years into the history of the formation of a unified Russian State at the turn of the 16th century. The article is based on the appraisal, given by V. I. Lenin in a number of his works, of the social, economic and political system of the Russian State in the 16th-17th centuries.
