‘A History of Modern Russia from Nicholas II to Putin’

By Robert Service

Penguin Books           

The updated version of the book "A History of Modern Russia" by Robert Service covers the period from the reign of Nicholas II to the presidency of Vladimir Putin. The account begins with the regn of Nicholas II and his subsequent overthrow. Then, the book recounts the history of the Soviet Union. This history is most interesting because it shows the evolution of the attitudes of Soviet leaders, from Stalin to Gorbachev. The book then covers the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the founding of the Russian Federation. This book is definitely a book for anyone interested in the history of Russia; it is very enjoyable to read and expertly written.
