Description - Russia (Dodo Press) by Sir Donald MacKenzie Wallace
Sir Donald Mackenzie Wallace (1841-1919) was a British editor and foreign correspondent of The Times of London. He contributed briefly to the editing of the 10th edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. However, in 1902, he was taken from his Britannica duties by the Prince of Wales, George V of the United Kingdom, who commanded Wallace's attendance for a world tour. Wallace accepted a private invitation to visit Russia, having a strong desire to study the Ossetes, an Aryan tribe in the Caucasus. Living in Russia from early 1870 until late 1875, Wallace found the Russian civilization far more interesting than his original Aryan Ossetes. Wallace returned to England in 1876 and published two volumes in his work Russia by 1877, right before the outbreak of the Russo-Turkish War. His book had great success, going through several edition transformations and translated into many languages. His other works include: Egypt and the Egyptian Question (1883), The Web of Empire (1902), Our Russian Ally (1914) and Short History of Russia & the Balkan States (1914).
