KIRKUS REVIEW

That the move from primitive skills to technological top place among the nations in a little over 200 years has many side effects on a country and its people is a major point in Dr. Habberton's thoughtful survey history of Russia. The absolute monarchs and the absolutism of Communist leaders is traced through revealing stories about individual rulers. The Russian economic and resource problems as well as the diplomatic difficulties of a semi-Western culture that has always been feared for its size are discussed in this clear picture of Russian affairs today and how they got that way. The book is in no way partisan, but asks for judgment of the country and its action/reaction pattern based on reason and background knowledge.
