History of Russia and Eastern Europe by Jack J Kanski is a book, not for historians, rather a concise overview that whets the appetite for further study.
There are clear graphics and the bullet point delivery of relevant facts works well. The chronological format makes it easy to read.
For those of us who are interesting in the history of this part of the world, l highly recommend this book as starting point, leaving the reader with all the relevant dates needed to make further study.
Thanks to Netgalley and Matador for allowing me to read this advanced copy.
