A clearly organized and wonderfully thorough reference book. It is, however a reference book and not a textbook (despite the existence of an accompanying workbook). Because of this, the beginning student of Russian may not find it to be of much use. Read full review

Wade's grammar is the clearest and most concise recently produced for the advanced learner of Russian as a foreign language. It beats the venerable Практическая грамматика from Пулькина on nearly every level! Read full review
