Fictionists also write scientific books. Boris Akunin, who once began his creative life as an academic writer, has again returned to popularization of science. This time it is History. All the more so, because there is a plenty of things here which one should take a close look at. Who in particular invited the Varangians to Rus'? What for, for what purpose, and, well, were they really invited? Of whom did basilei of Constantinople stand in awe? And who won, after all, in the conflict Byzantium-Rus'?

Boris Akunin is pursuing the answers together with his readers. Join them.
