Its oldness is what really makes this book interesting it was a blast to see late 19th early 20th century battles that we think of as preludes to WWI presented as being important in their own right I wish there had been about Russia s early history, but this was a pretty good overview I m interested into diving into specific books on the topic now. What makes this interesting to read is the fact that it was published in 1907, before the fateful events that would take place a decade later.

This book was an okay overview of the history of Russia But the title itself proclaims that it is just a short history, so it is not too indepth As it was published in 1907, the Russian Revolution hadn t happened yet, and it was poignant to read at the end who can foresee what will be the end, and what the ultimate destiny of the Empire which had its beginning in a small Slavonic State upon the Dnieper One thing that slightly puzzled me was an addendum at the end of the book which was quite lengthy, and didn t seem to be so much about Russia as about the Asian countries that border it And it startled me to read this passage that seems so paternalistic and patronizing Speaking of the country of Korea With no recognition of a Supreme Being, no sacred book without temples, or art, or literature, or industries, excepting one or two of a very simple nature, it is extremely difficult for the Western mind to understand what life must mean to this people That it is a degenerate form of national life which must be either absorbed or effaced seems obvious You can t just call a culture degenerate because it is different from your own That seemed really insulting to me, and left me with a little bit of a bad taste at the end. Let s face it My 20th century Spanish school education didn t have much about Russian history in the syllabus Thus, after spending over three weeks in St Petersburg I felt I lacked certain background knowledge This was the first, and free, book on Russian history I found in the Kindle store and I m satisfied after several hours of reading From Rurik all the way to 1907, when this books was first published, I now know much than I did before and will hopefully help me moving forward.Unfortunately this was written at the dawn of the 20th century and thus I m left with a bit of a gap about the most relevante period, maybe, in the whole history of Russia, but luckily I knew about that period the most.All in all a good, but not mind blowing by any means, read. Glah, I accidentally deleted my review I clearly need a nap Either way, I m not going to rewrite it in full.I recommend this book, as it condenses a broad overview of Russian history, from 800CE until its writing in 1907, into a mere 300 odd pages The date at which it was written adds to the book in my opinion firstly, the style is flowery and interesting, rather than using the dry tone adopted by the predominant number of modern history books Secondly, some of the events in the book were contemporary to the author, so it seems somehow personal, and real.In contrast to some of the other readers, I also enjoyed the supplement, though its placement after the conclusion was odd It gave an overview of Russia s history in the East, which I found invaluable. Nice, readable history from earliest peoples to 1900s It a good overview although the final chapter, ending with the author s fervent hopes that Russia has reached a tipping point away from barbarism and toward civility by the early 1900s was apparently over optimistic Lives up to its name and sort of quaint when reading some of the passages. Parmele ends the history at the climax of Russian history Even from the vantage point of 110 years later the series of events in that history point to one of two likely options a re embrace of the west and a democratisation of the governmental system or a turning again to the East and a return to despotic government Parmele envisions a continuing orientalising of Russia, but imagines that the days of abject inhumanity to the masses were over The Tzar s cruel massacre of hundreds of innocent and armless civilians at the Winter Palace sadly led not to the end of barbarity but was just a grim foreshadowing of Stalin a bloody purges which led to deaths than even Nazism A very readable introduction to Russian history I loved it I learned a lot about Russia in a short period I didn t realize Russia was Christianized in 992 Though, the state of the country now is derivative of what occurred in Medieval Russia There was lots of attempted and successful regicides and disputes over the throne while the masses were barbaric and enslaved Their culture and society did not advance with the rest of Europe and even when Alexander II emancipated them, little improved Anyway, it s little surprise to me the way Russians see their people and the presence of communism, given Russia s history.
