    About "Isabel de Madariaga"

      • Isabel de Madariaga

        Isabel de Madariaga Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Ivan the Terrible book, this is one of the most wanted Isabel de Madariaga author readers around the world.


    1. Interesting in form; the author is up-front about the fact that this book is not based on primary sources. This is a weakness, to be sure, but it is, at the same time, a strength, as it allows the author an opportunity to examine the work of previous historians, and make judgments as to whether one historian has a more plausible account of events than another. That being said, the writing is dry as dust, the author could not find a synonym for "appanage", which must occur more than 300 times in [...]

    2. I was so angry by the time I finally finished this book that I immediately started to reread Troyat's Ivan the Terrible before I could embark on Ivan the Terrible by Payne & Romanoff (which I am really excited about because it's supposedly going to be a "psychological biography"). I felt that Ivan was more of a footnote than the subject of this book, which focused more on foreign policy and wars than it did on Ivan. I realize that those were primary concerns, but I expected to learn more abo [...]

    3. Not finding this maintains my interest but shall persevere till finished.Finished this late yesterday (Saturday). This really is a definite work on Russia and Ivan - so much so that I would be hesitant in recommending it for a novice to this particularly area of study. It is a very indepth coverage of the political, social and economic status of Russia before and during the reign of Ivan IV. At times, I found myself bogged down in detail when all I really wanted was to hear more about Ivan, his [...]

    4. Newflash! Ivan the Terrible was actually Terrible (with a capital T that rhymes with P - never mind). The issue is, not a lot of contemporary, primary sources survive. Moscow was mostly constructed of wood- there were a lot of fires. We don't even know if Ivan could write. de Madariaga does her very best, and what she is able to verify is certainly very interesting, but at the end of the day, it didn't really satisfy my curiosity.

    5. If I wanted to read about the history of Russia, I would have picked up a book on the history of Russia. I desired to find out more about Ivan the Terrible and yet I never received anything remotely interesting. This book was informative in the wrong way. Detailed and yet not corresponding to its title.

    6. Todella vaihteleva taso. Alku oli aikamoista kahlaamista ja termien selittelyä, eikä millään hyvällä tavalla. Keskikohdan paikkeilla kirja muuttui luettavaksi. Kirja oli ehkä turhan akateeminen normi lukijalle, mutta toinen akateemikko ja Venäjää jo ennestään tunteva saisi tästä ehkä enemmän irti.

    7. An essential time in Russian history, Ivan the Terrible kept Russia on its independent path of development without the benefit of close connections with Western Europe because he was culturally not European but more a product of the structure of the Ottoman empire resultant from the breakup of the Eastern and Western traditions and understandings. His continual attempts to connect with Europe show the high level of interest in establishing such linkages, but more often his approach to foreign af [...]

    8. Definitely informative, painstakingly researched, but a tedious readte: Eisenstein's "Ivan the Terrible" is by far my favorite film, ever. I've watched it at least 50 times. Anybody thinking that the real Ivan had anything to do with the film Ivan should read this book. The real Ivan was insanely bloodthirsty and much, much, much worse then the film depicts. One wishes that Eisenstein could have conveyed Ivans brutality a bit more directly, but who knows if Stalin would have allowed that. in any [...]

    9. This book is very detailed. One can tell the author put her time and love into writing it. There are plenty of sources in the back of the book, just in case you want to read other books along with this one to further your knowledge of Russia during the period of Ivan the Terrible. If your studying some part of Russian history this book will def. help. I wanted to learn more about Russia when I finished this book. It gives you a broader idea of why Russia is the way it is today through their poli [...]

    10. This book is extremely informative, and I enjoyed Isabel de Madariaga's view on Ivan's life. In essence, this book paraphrases all preceding books on Ivan the Terrible. Madariaga's sources range from newspaper articles to full-size books in a variety of languages. This book is extremely good when using for research, with several tid-bits of information. However, Madariaga tends to mix in opinion with fact on a regular basis which can irk the reader and make it difficult to separate the two.

    11. Turgid, overwritten, pedantic, dense. I got to page 74 and gave up and I NEVER give up reading a book I've started.Clearly there are not enough primary sources for a decent written life of Ivan IV. I'm actively looking for an alternative author who's written the biography that I set out to want.

    12. Read this a while ago, but apparently forgot to update here. I really enjoyed the book, it was well-written with a good combination of history and anecdotes. Another area of history I would love to read more about

    13. Venäjän historia 1500-luvulta oli ilmeisesti sekavaa, mutta niin oli kirjakin ja tuntui, että asiasta toiseen loikittiin päämäärättömästi. Montaa asiaa pohjustettiin huolella, mutta varsinainen eteneminen oli hidasta. Olisin kaivannut napakkaampaa otetta asioihin ja jätin kirjan kesken.

    14. A fine academic biography of Ivan the Terrible that puts him firmly in his historical context: not only the life of the lunatic ruler but an overview of medieval Russia, its social structures and its political and military challenges. A very good book indeed.

    15. Extremely informative, but a struggle to finish. I lost count of the number of times I fell asleep while reading this.

    16. scholarly review of Ivan's life and times; can be difficult going at times if you do not have a good foundation knowledge of Russian history/social climate
