Cyrillic Help

Dear Lazyweb:

I need some help in transcribing Cyrillic: A text we're preparing at Project Ben-Yehuda includes mention of a work title in Russian, reproduced in the following image:

I can't seem to find the character I've circled in red anywhere in the "Cyrillic" character set offered by Word's Insert Symbol command. Is this the historical character YAT? Do I need a non-standard font to display it? Is it commonly replaced by a different character in modern script? And, given that the story in question was composed in the 19th century, doesn't it make sense to leave it with that character?

Thank you.
