Hello, friends!

excuse me, please -I am interested in Russian history but had not found a topic concerned with Russia.

Tell me, please, which books about Russia you have read and respected as more interesting and useful. And more objective.

I had found some books in the free scientific library, for example,this one;

reslib . com/book/Encyclopedia_of_Russian_History__Millar_J__

But i am interested in more - especially about ancient Russia

Thank you!!!

Hi Pourlettres,
If you're interested in ancient Russian history. Try Kliuchevsky, a classical Russian historian. The English translation of his major creation are available here:
 
 
The other one is Karamzin, but, unfortunately, he is only available in Russian AFAIK.

Hmm... The relation is quite apparent. From 18th century onward Russia was regarded as a dangerous threat by the British, even going to the point of paranoia in the 19th century, as Russia was often regarded as the only power able to challenge the British Empire's supremacy by being able invade India from the North...
