    Yes, perhaps it was the three centuries of murderous desire that caught my eye a subtitle I hope one day to borrow for my first autobiography But this is exactly the sort of non fiction I enjoy, a detailed study of an unknown unknown Sure, I was dimly aware of Russia s sometime capital in its capacity as literary and revolutionary backdrop, and some of its name changes, but otherwise it had

    Good book marred by factual errors Pearl Harbor in 1942 seriously Lenin s mislabeling the Mensheviks repeated as truth Tsar s abdication site incorrect Too bad because otherwise a good read

    Do American schools not teach Russian history Because apparently I didn t know any I enjoyed this book mainly for the gaps it filled in I don t think I could have located St Petersburg on a map previously and it turns out that a lot of stuff has h...
