    I really learned a lot about the forming of Russia. The families were discussed and the war machine of the Russians holding off Hitler's army during world War 2 was quite an astounding feat. There were quite a few gaps that I would have loved to know more about. What I loved about this book was the questions at the end of each chapter which allowed me to digest what I had read. There were so many interesting facts and history lessons in each chapter. Even the fact that the book is not very thick I really learned a lot about the forming of Russia.

I, on a personal level, would have loved to know more about the period between Ivan and his crazy son and Peter the Great. I would have loved to know more about Poland's help. This is a lot of information and it gives a wonderful explanation for all the maneuvering the leaders have put into place.

    History of Russia is a book written with the intention of providing sufficient information about Russia from the early (800-1200) right up until the breakup of the Union. I found this book to be very interesting. I had always wanted to know more about the history of Russia and the culture. Vladimir Putin, Tsars and many more famous characters in history have been mentioned in this book. I believe the book would benefit more with maps & pictures. I believe this it is covering large scale of lands a History of Russia is a book written with the intention of providing sufficient information about Russia from the early (800-1200) right up until the breakup of the Union.

Vladimir Putin, Tsars and many more famous characters in history have been mentioned in this book. I believe the book would benefit more with maps & pictures. I believe this it is covering large scale of lands and subjects; it would be a nice addition to the content. I did not understand why there were questions at the end of each chapter. It took the feeling away from it being a historical book to a school textbook. I recommend this book to anyone that wishes to know more about Russian History.

    "Russia: History of Russia" by Ian Maslow is an excellent summary of Russia's history. The first chapters are an introduction to Russia's history since 800 A.D. when it remained under the power of the Rurik dynasty, being what now we know as Belorussia, Russia and Ukrania. We go through Prince Oleg, Igor of Kiev’s and Vladimir the Great’s, where the author goes on to explain the Christianization of the Kievan Rus and the drastic changes it meant for the empire.   From there, we jump to the Mongolian "Russia: History of Russia" by Ian Maslow is an excellent summary of Russia's history. The first chapters are an introduction to Russia's history since 800 A.D. when it remained under the power of the Rurik dynasty, being what now we know as Belorussia, Russia and Ukrania. We go through Prince Oleg, Igor of Kiev’s and Vladimir the Great’s, where the author goes on to explain the Christianization of the Kievan Rus and the drastic changes it meant for the empire.   From there, we jump to the Mongolian domination. And the Battle of the Kalka River during Mstislavich’s reign. The author makes here an insight about the Tsardom (174 years, from 1547 until 1721), sorting it as "the most dangerous stage in Russian history." We get to the Russian Republic, Catherine the Great and Paul I (who was very controversial because of his pasive strategies and the several enemies he built up along his reign).   And finally, the Soviet Union in 1922 after the 1st and 2nd Revolution. "The Soviet Union was comprised of 15 Soviet republics, as well as 15 independent states."   Here is well explained the way they stopped Nazis and what consequences it carried. Then, obviously, The Cold at the end of the 2nd World War. " After the revolutions from 1989, the Soviet Union collapsed, and all the states that had been a part of it became independent republics." And on that point, we find the Russian Federation, with V. Putin as President since 1999.   The last chapter is a conclusion of the author, an ode to the sacrifice and perseverant Russian folk's heart. Maslow writing is sweet and clarifying, you feel the care he pours on his words.   I found this book, on one side, very interesting because Russia and East Europe is a mystery to most of us. Secondly, I loved how is structured, chronologically correct, clear, coherent and easy to understand to ignorant ears like mine (thank you). Russia has taken a primordial role in the events of World Wars and other countries' issues and business, it's a very important pillar of the world, as necessary as dangerous, and I greatly appreciate this book to bring a bit of light. Thank you, and congratulations.

    Sadly, this is a rare review for me. I love books, and I love Russian history. That being said, this book was virtually unreadable. The grammar was bad, very bad. I don't mention that often, but it made it necessary for me to read passages several times, just to understand what they said. Secondly, the information was so wrong that I would have to call it fiction. There were some truths in the book, however, the author actually contradicted himself several times.

Secondly, the information was so wrong that I would have to call it fiction. There were some truths in the book, however, the author actually contradicted himself several times. For example, if Gorbachev took power in 1990, then how did he make policy in the 1980's? Food for thought. That is only one of many problems with the accuracy of the material. I also felt that the author was slanting the material from the 20th century and beyond to fit his personal opinion of Putin. I don't like to slam a book. Unfortunately, I cannot help further the spread of the information in this book. It is false. That comes from 30 years of experience in the study of Russian History and being there first hand for some of the Gorbachev years, not year. I am sorry, but do not take this book seriously as a way to study Russian history.

    This book provided a good overview of Russia from the Kyivan Rus to 2015. It was VERY brief, however, with only a few pages per topic (maybe 10 each on the Kyivan Rus, the Tsars, the Empire, the Revolution, WWII, the fall of the USSR, and today) It also had little "what would you do?" questions about each chapter, but those were pretty stupid, and honestly if you're not a monster you have to answer them in one given way.

The biggest problem I had with this book is that it had a lot of grammatical errors, including twice leaving the word "not" out of a sentence and completely changing their meaning. It also glossed over Stalinism, approaching it neither during the WWII nor the Post-WWII chapter. He makes the argument that Russia has been ruled overwhelmingly by incompetent people with just enough visionaries to shape it into what it has eventually become. But this either lumps a lot of tyrants in under "incompetent" or ignores them all together. It seems like this is the kind of book you would get in Russia, rather than a fair look at the country from a neutral perspective.

    A big disappointment I expected this to be the “Cliff Notes” of Russian history. It indeed tries to do that but suffers from poor editing and a lack of scholarly language. It covers all the main events so its average in meeting my expectations. But the poor editing, word choices and grammatical errors makes it confusing and unsatisfactory. It’s short length is a major contributor to those shortcomings

    I'm pretty sure you could read Wikipedia and get just as much information about Russia.

    This book is introduction to Russian history, but looks like it was evidently rushed in to the print by a second rate editor.Grammar errors just make this book unreadable.Content is interesting but it does need some editing.
