Carleton's work is objective and sober, but nevertheless compelling to read. He doesn't write as one of those *other* scholars who wrap themselves in the banner of "objectivity" as a way to cloak Putin apologism. Rather, Carleton takes a wide range of important Russian cultural artifacts (literature, films, television shows, and official government histories) from the civilization's military mythology and shows the reader how Russians have come to view themselves and their mission as a people.
Carleton's research goes well beyond what you typically see in Western headlines and sheds critical light on the official, government-driven revisionism of Russian military history. At the same time, he is unflinching in his telling of the horror and tragedy which history has visited upon the people.
This is a superb, critical read for both expert and amateur alike.
Carleton's conclusions on Russia: "Russia truly is a special kind of beast. Its DNA is to expand and conquer" ... because of its "predatory character" (p. 253.) "Subjugating neighboring peoples" is "part of Russia's genetic makeup" (P. 254)
There is no analysis of Russia's actions in Georgia or Ukraine - just a repetition of the lies in Western MSM on "aggressive Russia."
