Hi there,

I don't read much history, so I don't know where to begin looking for this. I'm looking for a (modern) history of Moscow, I'll be headed there in a month or so, and I want to learn about the city. Any recommendations?

I have the Lonely planet one, but I am looking for something more "prose" like. Something engrossing.

Hm. I know of some more particular histories of Moscow - Moscow in the Second World War, the churches of Moscow during the 20th century, the arts in Moscow, etc - but not a good one that rolls all that kind of info together. What are you most interested in seeing in Moscow?

A history of literary figures in Moscow would be neat. That or mathematicians / academics. I'm going there for a semester to study mathematics and hopefully learn a little Russian.

I"m not helpful in the case- I just wanted to say that I love your icon!
