A Short History Of Russia
Mary Platt Parmele

A Short History Of Russia

This is an excellent book for anyone with an interest in Russian history. It presents a concise review from the Scythians to the two empires through each and every Tsar and Tsaritsa and how the accumulation of all this served to form a great, massive empire with its place in Europe and Christendom. Author Mary Platt Parmele had a great way of expressing herself which makes for a quite entertaining history book. She is definitely opinionated and often doesn't bother to back up her opinions with facts or analysis, but just tosses them out at the reader. Though the book is fairly brief and is not a comprehensive study of Russia it is still very enjoyable, witty and insightful. If you like history, especially European history, you will find this book offers an interesting slice of history. It gives a good overview of Russia from the earliest times untilt the turn of the 20th century.

Author Mary Platt was born in Albany, New York and educated in New York. Her first marriage was to J. J. Agnew and her second marriage to Theodore W. Parmele. From 1892 she began contributing philosophical articles and short stories to reviews and magazines, and published Kingdom of the Invisible and Christian Science. However, her most successful books were a number of "Short History" books of various countries written in the late 19th and early 20th century. Her "Short History of..." books included France, England, United States, Germany, Spain, Russia and Italy.
