The scholar of Russian colonialism, Richard Austen Pierce (1918-2004) writes a very insightful and warm introduction on the man and his times. He says it not only "throws much new light on the economy and administration of the Russian-administered territories and vassal states of Khiva and Bukhara".. but "also provides a revealing glimpse of a worthy representative of the pre-revolutionary Russian ruling class." A favorable review by another Russian specialist, Wright Watts Miller, from an unidentified scholarly journal, is laid in. Fine.
