Russia in brief, 25 Feb 2014
This history is indeed very brief. It provides a basis for seeking more information.
For me it showed the importance of Kiev to Russia's development and why one can anticipate Moscow's intervention
The Russia has always suffered from despots or strong leaders and hence the acceptance of Putin
Personally think this book is too brief and I should have been more adventurous
