Review

Praise for the work of Martin Sixsmith:

"Martin Sixsmith brings out all the political drama (and literary resonance) of the ongoing confrontation between Putin and the imprisoned entrepreneur Mikhail Khodorkovsky."



""Russia, a 1,000 Year Chronicle of the Wild East" has all the ingredients to become the leading popular history of Russia. Colloquial, personal and anecdotal in style . . . well researched and factually sound."---"The Times Literary Supplement"


"Sixsmith immerses readers in the Russian landscape and peoples with descriptions of places he's visited and quotations of poetry . . . Sixsmith effectively updates the continuities of Russian history, motivating readers to check out such scholarly surveys as Russia and the Russians, by Geoffrey Hosking."---"Booklist"

"Among the many contemporary books about Russia, general readers are likely to choose Sixsmith's 600-page tome for its comprehensiveness and air of authority. As popular history, it is enjoyable and engaging."----Reading Behind the Lines, Russia

"This entertaining, informative book presents a sweeping portrait of the entirety of Russian history from the founding of the first state on Russian soil in the ninth century to the present."--CHOICE
