About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1908, as part of the Cambridge Historical Series, this book presents a comprehensive account of the political history of Poland and Russia over a period of 350 years. It was written by the influential British historian and linguist Robert Nisbet Bain (1854–1909). The text begins with a discussion of the reign of Casimir IV, before moving through various historical phases to the reign of Catherine the Great. A detailed bibliography is also included. This is a highly readable book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in historiography and perspectives on the histories of Poland and Russia.

    Very interesting. Quite easy to follow although the subject matter is quite dense and detailed.
