TOP REVIEWS FROM RUSSIAN HISTORY: FROM LENIN TO PUTIN
An excellent overview of the pre-Soviet to present Russia. Thank you very much to Professor Peter Kenez for providing this knowledge filled course.
Well presented and interesting- a good learning, though I had to read the translation as recording was not clear.Transaltion could be better.
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.
This is the coolest, most intresting history course I've ever taken on Coursera. I would junt live more bibliographical material during the course. But it was incredible
