Praise For A History of Russia Volume 1: To 1917 (Anthem Series on Russian)

‘Manages to embrace a wide range of topics while at the same time remaining accessible and interesting…balances humorous anecdotes with provocative concepts, and discusses historiography in a clearer and more contemporary fashion than that found in Riasanovsky's A History of Russia, now in its sixth edition and looking a bit musty by comparison...There is little to fault with this volume.’
Andrew Gentes, Lecturer in Russian and European History, University of Queensland in Australian Slavonic and East European Studies, Vol. 18 (2004)

‘An expertly presented and thoroughly informative narration recommended for a scholar's Russian History reference shelf, as well as accessibly informative reading for the non-specialist general reader with an interest in the historical development of Russia.'
