TOP REVIEWS FROM RUSSIAN HISTORY: FROM LENIN TO PUTIN
Great sense of humanity from Kenez, with specific details as well as a broad overview of the events affecting (and being affected by) Russia.
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.
My first ever online course, and what a great start. The Professor leading it was very good at explaining the fasicating and recent history of Russia with a personal touch. 5/5
Great class and the professor did an excellent job relaying the information. Honestly, I wish it was a little longer and a little more in depth. Definitely, learned a lot.
