Editorial Reviews

Review

 'Andrei Pavlov of St. Petersburg and Maureen Perrie of Birmingham have written not only a very impressive synthesis of scholarship on the reign of Ivan IV, in itself a great accomplishment, but also a monograph which presents a coherent thesis concerning the relationship of Ivan's rule to Russia's political evolution. ...'

'This succinct volume now sets the standard by which all future "short" syntheses of Ivan's reign will be judged. This is far and away the most readable survey of Ivan's reign in print in English.'

'...In conclusion, Pavlov and Perrie have written a work which will appeal to specialists and nonspecialists alike, and will provide much food for thought about the still little-understood but always intriguing reign of Ivan the Terrible.'

H-Net Reviews, Charles Halperin of Indiana University

'Andrei Pavlov and Maureen Perrie have produced an excellent and very welcome biography of the fascinating and elusive Ivan the Terrible.  The work maintains the reader's interest in the horror and sensational cruelty of Ivan's reign, while adhering to rigorously scholarly standards and advancing an orginal argument of its own.'

'The book is well-written and readable.

Canadian Journal of  History, August 2004

'...this book can be highly recommended as a balanced and comprehensive account of Ivan IV's reign.'

Sergei Bogatyrev, SEER, 82, 4, 2004

'Ivan the Terrible is a valuable work for all scholars of Russian or early modern European history, and will be particularly useful for undergraduate students of this period.'

Debra Coulter, The Historical Association, Jan 2005

' All in all, the authors have provided an illuminating political analysis of the reign of Ivan IV... a provocative and informative starting point for classroom discussion.  The study is also of value to the general reader who wants to understand Russia's place within the European Community of states of the pre-modern period.'

English Historical Review, Feb 2005

'Pavlov and Perrie have produced a work that is exceptionally well researched and supported by a comprehensive index. Of considerable help to the reader are the chronology, maps and genealogical tables... a valuable acquistion for scholars of Russion, as is the bibliography for scholars of Russion or early modern European history.'

European History Quarterly, 35.1

Format: Paperback
This book had some good information, but it was really dry and I had trouble staying focused on / interested in it. I also prefer biographies that are a bit more about the person, and less just about the political atmosphere (although I get that it's difficult to really focus on the person when there aren't many reliable sources).

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book as a requirement for an upper division history course. From the introduction, I thought this book would be interesting. But unless you like to wade through pages upon pages of Russian names, I would select a different source to learn about Ivan the Terrible. Even though names are important in history, this book seemed to insert names many times when they were not necessary to understanding the point being made. The flow of the narrative was also severely broken up. You will find yourself reading a paragraph with fifteen different names in it, and at the end, you will ask what was the paragraph even trying to say. Overall, I was disappointed in the book. If it was not a required reading, I would have not finished it. From other sources that I have read, this period in Russian history is filled with exciting and intriguing events, yet you would not know that from this book.
