"Combining in-depth research with his personal experiences as the BBC Moscow correspondent for almost twenty years, Sixsmith tells Russia's full and fascinating story, from its foundation in the last years of the tenth century to the first years of the twenty-first, skillfully tracing the conundrums of modern Russia to their roots in its troubled past. Covering politics, music, literature and art, he explores the myths Russians have created from their history."-- Publisher's description.

This is an enjoyable and informative book, but the subtitle is misleading. The author gives cursory treatment to the first 800 or so years of this 1000 year history, the majority of this book is about the 20th and 21st century.
