Sunlight at Midnight

I read W. Bruce Lincoln's Sunlight at Midnight: St. Petersburg and the Rise of Modern Russia this week and enjoyed it very much. It's more than just a history of St. Petersburg and discusses a variety of topics, especially Petersburg's architecture and culture. The chapter on the siege of Leningrad was particularly good. Recommended.
