A SHORT HISTORY OF RUSSIA – AUDIOBOOK
By Lucy Cazalet (1870 – 1956)
A Short History of Russia by Lucy Cazalet is a helpful introduction to the people, places, and events that shaped Russia, the largest country in the world. While covering the bullet points of Russian history, the author expands to greater detail when talking about the people whose ideas and victories became the backbone of Russian culture and politics. The timeline of this book is the 9th century A.D. to 1906, when the country’s first State Parliament (Duma or Дума) opened, but before the last Romanov Tsar, Nicholas II, was executed, and Revolution swept the entire country.
