An amazing warehouse of information related to Russia. It was very interesting to read how Russia came into existence and what happened in its 1000 year of history.

I was always wondering what happened to Gorbachev's reforms and why it lead to collapse of USSR and now I know why. I still remember images from the television news Gorbachev handing over the briefcase containing nuclear controls to Boris Yeltsin and now I know exactly what sequence of events lead to this state.

This book is highly recommended for anybody remotely interested in Russian history.
