1.0 out of 5 stars no translation makes chunks irrelevant, 28 Jan 2011
This review is from: The Russian Empire, 1801-1917 (Oxford History of Modern Europe) (Hardcover)
Unfortunately this book was written by an author who assumed that the only people who wanted to read such a text were those who had the benefit of an education that left them fluent in French. He quotes extensively from letters and documents by the Russian Nobility which were written in French and there is no translation. This means that it is impossible to fully understand the point the original writer and the author are making. Stay away from this book unless of course you are a fluent French speaker. I do not know if the later editions do have a translation, a shame because it is very informative about the period.
