Extraordinary

Comprehensive. Start at the beginning and just take the ride. This is a course. Wish I’d found it sooner. This is about the peoples of the Russian Empire. White Sea to Black Sea. Europe to the Pacific. Linguistics. Material cultures. Economics. Politics. Christians, Muslims, Jews, Pagans, Manacheans. Buddhists. Identity. Culture. Why and How the story unfolded the ways it did and didn’t. Cause and Effect. Extraordinary. Thank you. Wow.
