Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Nature and the Image of Princely Power in Kievan Rus', 980-1054 presents the table of contents, a list of abbreviations, preface, acknowledgments, and maps. The book interprets what the sources tell or do not tell us about the nature and image of princely power. It attempts to stress the unsaid and avoids any interpretations based on "the silence of the sources". As a historiographic study of an important phase in the formation of a Christianized Kievan Rus', the book addresses the secondary literature (recognizing that there exists a vast secondary literature and discretion had to be exercised in its use and interpretation) that provides further insights into this complex period and into the nature and the image of rulership.

Keywords: Eastern Slavic; Kievan Rus'; Princely Power
