  • "The fullest and most important and influential history of Russia ever written."-Horecky, Basic Russian Publications

  • "Every university and large college library should give serious consideration to making the commitment to obtain this major work. An invaluable addition to the basic undergraduate library."-Choice
  • "Much of Soloviev's narrative of Russian foreign policy, for example, is simply an exhaustive paraphrase of the relevant archival holdings, which makes the book invaluable precisely to the nonspecialist."-The Russian Review
