The Russian Century: A History of the Last Hundred Years by Brian Moynahan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Moynahan has written a book for anyone who wants an understanding of Russian history and how it evolved over the past one hundred years, from the Romanovs up until the emergence of Boris Yeltsin.
It is is an example, for me, of the old saying that travel broadens one's experiences. I purchased this book in St. Petersburg on October 10, 2010 while on a trip to that city and to Moscow. My recent renewed interest in Russia began with learning the effect that Vladimir Putin is having on our own electoral process.
