Hey everyone! Welcome to Dylan Jones’ blog site for 20th Century Russia at Virginia Tech! I wanted to add this section to give a little bit of background information about myself and about the blog. I am currently a senior at Virginia Tech and I am graduating this spring. After graduation, I will be starting graduate school in the Fall at The University of Texas. I took this class as a requirement for my Political Science Degree, but I was extremely excited to learn more about Russian history and Russian culture. This blog contains posts written by me as the semester progressed. I think it is clear in my blog posts that I continued to progress in both knowledge and interest as the semester went on. Please click through my blog posts and comments and be sure to click the link to our class website on the menu to see my other classmates’ amazing blog sites as well.
