A History of Russia: Everything you’ve ever wanted to know and more too.

Spoiler-tastic review

I love the Teaching Company lectures, and this course was no different. If you’re not in the loop, the TC gets professors from universities around the world to do entire courses on audio book. This one about Russia was excellent. I now know more about the Romanovs, Bolsheviks and Mensheviks than ever before.

Time for constructive criticism. Uhhh… Yeah. I have none. The lecturer was well spoken, spoke in detail but didn’t delve too far into the nitty gritty, and clearly knew what he was on about. I *might* complain about the fact that the lecturer didn’t really go into Russia’s reasons behind entering WWI, but honestly I can only say that because I know so much about it.

If you’re interested in learning more about Russia, feel free to check this out.

Stay Sunny!
