Sinossi

“I always imagine Russian history,” suggests American writer and veteran expatriate, Jennifer Eremeeva, “on a huge, 3D IMAX screen, surround sound booming with a jumbo bucket of popcorn in your lap and huge blue drink at your side.”  Eremeeva should know: as a former tour guide and Ivy League-educated historian, Eremeeva is adept at making Russia’s complex history both entertaining and digestible for non-academics.  She strolls expertly but lightly through her material, tracing the winning formula for Russia’s effective rulers back to the Tatar Mongols: revealing why Ivan may not have been so Terrible; explaining why Catherine so totally awesome; and asserting that neither Peter the Great nor Stalin would ever tweet anything.

Eremeeva encourages us to peek inside Empress Elizabeth’s baroque boudoir; she deconstructs Gorbachev’s curiously-split personality, and shows us exactly where the bodies are buried. Eremeeva’s unique fusion of humor and history, and inimitable writing style brings the riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma that is Russia into hilarious focus in this compact and highly readable guide to thirteen centuries of her history.

Fans of Eremeeva’s blogs, columns, and her full-length book, Lenin Lives Next Door: Marriage, Martinis, and Mayhem in Moscow are sure to enjoy this further exploration of Russia’s soft and hilarious underbelly.  For readers embarking on a visit to Russia or an exploration of the country’s rich literature and culture, Have Personality Disorder, Will Rule Russia offers a succinct, informative, and highly entertaining introduction to the country’s complex and expansive history.

To download Jennifer Eremeeva’s recommendations for further reading about medieval and imperial Russia, the Romanovs, and current events in the Russian Federation, visit www.jennifereremeeva.com/russianreadinglist.

5.0 su 5 stelle Insightful Engaging Analysis 2 gennaio 2017

As I read this book I could not help but thinking back to John Reed's "Ten Days that Shook the World". Both books describe monumental events which happened in Russia. I doubt this work will be made assigned reading by as many professors who assign John Reed. However, the professor's students would be the poorer for the omission. The book is insightful. The author shows a love and understanding of the Russian people. Her tone is personal and engaging. Reed's work and her work seem to form book ends for the 1917 Revolutions. Western policy makers would be wise to read this book. The same is true for anyone who wants to know about Russia.

This is a great brief history of Russia! I was able to understand all of it and it was fascinating, not a dry history book at all. Makes me want to delve more into Russian history.
I bought it while in Russia as I wanted to understand the people and my new Russian friends better and understand where they're coming from. After reading this I noticed I understood their "inside jokes" and references more than I ever had before. History is so important to culture that it really is relevant in everyday lives.

I was getting ready for a trip to Russia and wanted to learn about Russian history. The book was an interesting and easy read, and it gave me the information I wanted. It is organized by rulers which makes it easy to go back review when something about a certain leader comes up. There is so much interesting history, places and palaces that the information in the book helps to put it all into context. After reading the book, I had a greater understanding and appreciation for the places and sights I saw and learned about on my trip.

I never thought of history in such a fascinating manner as personality disorders. Now North Korea and a certain red headed candidate are really resonating this way. It's small but pithy and will give me a different perspective when I am in Russia this summer. Thank you for the entertainment and the unique education.
