From the author's preface: "This book is, I believe, the only existing compendium, in English, of the political history of Poland and Russia, from the middle of the fifteenth to the end of the eighteenth century, when the Polish Republic disappeared from the map of Europe and the Russian Empire took its place as the head and right arm of the Slavonic world." At the time of original publication in 1908, R. Nisbet Bain was Assistant Librarian of the British Museum. Bain was an outstanding pioneer among British scholars studying Eastern Europe at the turn of the Century. His history of Russia and Poland during these crucial centuries inevitably emphasizes their close political relations while treating the separate histories of each.
