Good in that it supplies the reader with a ridiculous amount of information about the governance of Kozlov. The last chapter is especially interesting, and if it weren't for that chapter, it'd get only two stars. Very dry, difficult to extract a thesis, no overall conclusion. If you want to know everything there is to know about steppe frontier garrison towns (including grain prices), this is the book to get.
