Russia: a History and an Interpretation
Russia: a History and an Interpretation
By Michael T. Florinsky
Macmillan, 1953, 2 pp.

An intensive and well-digested survey of the course of Russian history from the Kievian period to the establishment of Bolshevik power in 1918. Mr. Florinsky's study is firmly grounded in earlier scholarship, as is particularly nicely demonstrated by his illuminating discussion of conflicting interpretations of the Russian past.
