I am pleased to note that the great historian Ralph Raico after viewing the clip sent me an email that said:
I've just listened to your talk on the history of the Soviet Union. It is magnificent! The amount of scholarship is overwhelming. You did a truly great job.
RalphThe feedback at the conference was also quite favorable, so I am going to put together an expanded hard copy version of the lecture that will include more detail, especially on the Yeltsin and Putin era, and footnotes that reference all the quotes and data that I used in my speech.
