TOP REVIEWS FROM RUSSIAN HISTORY: FROM LENIN TO PUTIN
Thank you Professor Kenez for the engaging course! Although I wish it were a bit longer, the most important information was conveyed in a relaxed and reflective manner.
This course gave me a greater understanding of some of the misconceptions of Russia, I came to realize that people are similar the world over. Very interesting course.
I enjoyed the class immensely, the only problem i had was the last quiz didnt specify that you could pick more than one answer so i didnt know.
Very informative and well presented. Professor Kenez gives a thorough explanation of why Russia is what it is. It's the history from the Czarist regime to the common era. Thank you, Professor!
