Gr 5-9 Siberia, dreaded land of exile, has a surprisingly interesting history. A trackless expanse inhabited by native peoples and passing migrations until the late 1500s, it was casually annexed by the first czar, Ivan the Terrible. Siberia proved resistant to civilized settlement, so tyrannical rulers used it as a dumping ground for recalcitrant citizens, many of whom became founders of towns and cities. Anderson has done a splendid survey of the history, geography, and politics of Siberia in a very readable book, flawed only by an insufficient number of maps. Because of its excellent organization, numerous black-and-white photographs and reproductions, and non-threatening style, this should be of interest to students for general reading and for reports. An interesting contrast to the westward expansion of the U.S. Ann Donovan, Central Washington University, Ellensburg
