TOP REVIEWS FROM RUSSIAN HISTORY: FROM LENIN TO PUTIN
This was a great course i really enjoyed the lectures i would forget i was stuck at home and felt as if i was back in a lecture hall! Would recommend to anyone to take!
An excellent overview of the pre-Soviet to present Russia. Thank you very much to Professor Peter Kenez for providing this knowledge filled course.
Excellent ,my first Corsera series and I loved learning about this. I wish there was a continuation on what is going on now with the Ukraine and Russia situation.
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.
