This review is from: Russia and the Russians: A History (Paperback)
I had found the first edition excellent as a review of Russian history and wanted this edition as it comes into more recent times.
We should realise that states to our East take a much longer overview of history, and their people are much more aware of it. The Chinese view of time is a good example of this.
The strength of this book is that it has a historical perspective which allows the reader to understand how the Russians have developed their own view of the World and why we in the West have our own somewhat differing view.
