Kievan Russia received the following reviews:
“The account of this little-know chapter of Russian history is based on a formidable mass of Slavic Byzantine, Germanic, and Oriental (notably Arabic and Persian_ sources. Much of this material is new, and the thorough utilization of all primary and secondary literature accumulated since Kluchevsky wrote his great history easily makes this volume the definitive study of the Kievan period in the English language. There is hardly an aspect of the life of Russia at that time which remains untouched, and the scope of the author’s interests and erudition is indeed impressive.When all is said, Vernadsky’s filling a definite gap in American historical literature.”—The Annals
“This volume is an outstanding contribution to the understanding of an important period of Russian history. It is bound to have a marked influence on Western opinion about the years in Russian history it treats in such masterly manner.”—American Historical Review
“If Professor Vernadsky has not written the definitive work on Kievan Russia, no such book could be written without being indebted to Professor Vernadsky’s encyclopedic erudition.”—American Historical Review
George Vernadsky is professor emeritus of Russian history at Yale University and the author of numerous books on Russian history.
