    Interesting read. A well done historical atlas. The plethora of maps cover the entire sweep of Russian history. The text provides enough background to give a good overview of what each period or event map serves to illustrate.Book is current through 2014 (final maps deal with current Russia-Ukraine conflict).

    4.5 / 5.0Love my maps! Informative succinct narrative accompanies beautiful uncluttered maps. Big format is easy to study and Legends are clear and helpful. Really impressed with narration. Excellent primer on Russian History.

    Dit boek valt een beetje tegen. Waarschijnlijk interessanter als je nog niets over de geschiedenis van Rusland gelezen hebt. Er zijn wel heel veel verduidelijkende kaarten. Wel een goed overzicht, maar naar mijn smaak te beknopt.

    I've long been fascinated by maps and by Russian/Soviet history; this atlas is a marvelous combination of both. It's dense yet readable, with colorful maps depicting Russian geographical, cultural, political histories.
