A decent account of more modern Russian history, though its focus is mainly social/intellectual. Steinberg uses the phrase "for good measure" more than anyone I've ever heard in my life. It got to be slightly irritating after hearing it in nearly every episode. ( )

An engaging overview of the history of Russia taught by a professor who feels deeply for the Russian people and lived in Russia during Soviet times. Inspiring and compelling.

And, of no real importance but I have to add, Mark Steinberg happens to sound a lot like David Schwimmer (Ross from Friends). ( )
