Excerpt from Russia Her Strength and Her Weakness: A Study of the Present Conditions of the Russian, Empire, With an Analysis of Its Resources, and a Forecast of Its FutureWith the considerable number of books on Russia. extant, it may well be asked why the present work was written. The answer to that must be: because, so far as the author knows, no previous monograph is in existence either covering the same ground or dealing in the same spirit with the subjects discussed.It has been the author's main object in this book to lay bare, without bias either way, the sources and extent of both Russia's strength and weakness, and to do so on the most reliable and most recent data and authorities. How far he has been successful in this must be left to the reader's own judgment. In the book itself it is pointed out that the searcher after truth is labouring under peculiar difficulties in dealing with facts concerning Russia. These difficulties have been overcome so far as that seemed humanly possible. But no claim for infallibility has been set up here. Indeed, on many minor points the author is open to correction.It is not believed, however, that any indulgence is necessary in the case of the main contention made in this book; namely, that by pursuing for another considerable length of time the present policy of foreign aggression and utter disregard of internal needs, Russia is on the road to national perdition.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
