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!
Thank you Professor Kenez for the engaging course! Although I wish it were a bit longer, the most important information was conveyed in a relaxed and reflective manner.
I recommend anyone interested in this period of Russian history to take the course. Professor Kenez is an authority on the period and delivers an excellent overview of the time.
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.
