Let me add two words to the Ode to Joy <clitched@earthlink.net>.

Judging by a few pages I was lucky to have opportunity to read, the book of Asif Siddiqi is of enourmous historical value first of all for Russians themselves and everyone who is interested in understanding Russia.

The book clearly stands out because of very extensive, honest and truthful (without slipping into either condemnation nor glorification) description of a significant, but yet almost unknown layer of a Russian society of that time, as well as the scope of
events these people were involved into.
