  • I m not quite sure how one makes the history of Russia boring, but this book manages it This gets the job done, but there are much enjoyable texts out there Riasanovsky s A History of Russia, for example.


  • It took me longer than I would have liked to because I had moved and for six months lost the book and because there was times that the book was too damn dry Since each chapter had a different author, some chapters were interesting than others however most covered the economics throughout Russia s history.The most interesting chapters were the rise of Stalin and throughout Stalin s years in power which of course included World War II and some of the Cold War i would have liked to have seen on t [...]



  • Any serious academic should blatantly ignore the bad reviews about this book, stating that it is too dry History is made on statistics and dates, not on humane fluffy nonsense In order to understand countries and trends, you have to understand the economic and institutional developments This book does an extremely good job at that If you just want to read countless anecdotes or memoirs, this is not the book for you, but if you want to truly understand the political and economic institutional dev [...]


  • Russia has a very complex history like many other European Middle East countries This book summarized the history very well.



  • The book explains thoroughly on significant events in Russian history and expands mostly in the 20th century It also explains too little if any contents on Russian art, literature or music and mostly writes on military, economic and political developments.It is a very useful and reliable references sources book in identifying and arguing developments trends in Russian history although some readers might find the writing style as too dry or academic as there is very little room on creative writin [...]


  • An interesting read The history of Russia from the 800 s onward to post Soviet Russia The history is good, the maps are nice, but I think I would have liked a little detail on the culture and language rather than just names and dates Still very interesting to me, though.


  • I don t really think I m knowledgable enough about other texts in Russian history to really identify if this was definitively better or worse, so I m not going to rate it, but yay finishing a book for class.


  • A good, solid overview though I think pre 18th Century Russia gets short shrift Each chapter is around 30 pages and all of history up to 1450 gets the same space as the period from 1929 1941 I would have preferred a longer book with time given to earlier history.


  • Very good read A bit slow in the beginning but that may reflect my interest level in the time up until the 1600 s I particularly liked the post Staline coverage, as I am weak in that area.
