by Mary Platt Parmele. If this book seems to have departed from the proper ideal of historic narrative if it is the history of a Power, and not of a People it is because the Russian people have had no history yet. There has been no evolution of a Russian nation, but only of a vast governing system; and the words "Russian Empire" stand for a majestic world power in which the mass of its people have no part. A splendidly embroidered robe of Europeanism is worn over a chaotic, undeveloped mass of semi barbarism.

  • Although she doesn't cover the 20th century and beyond, her books are always fascinating and place each European country in the overall regional context from the point of view of a Victorian age American.

  • I planned to visit France and wanted to read a short history before the trip. The was a useful history for my purpose.

  • If you are headed to France for your first trip this book is good background material.

  • The book covers a great deal of the history of France in very few pages. Amazing that it is free.

  • the author is to poetic to much floury

  • OK, I should have looked over the few "Look inside" pages but I didn't think for one moment that this would be a historical book on history. Interesting I suppose to see how history was seen at the beginning of last century but I think we know more today from research and can learn more from a modern perspective.

  • This was probably one of the worst written books I've ever had the misfortune to read. My husband and I couldn't even finish it.
