Russia by Arthur Reade


Russia is still, in a sense, virgin soil. ­In some respects, her Empire may be compared with that of Britain. Each is of vast extent, each has immense responsibilities in Asia. Behind each lies a powerful colonizing instinct. Each contains a large number of different races and peoples at widely different stages of development. For the great Eurasian plain does but introduce an element of uniformity into what is after all an extraordinary variety of nationalities, languages, and degrees of civilization, ranging from practically savage communities to the highly progressive inhabitants of Finland.
