Book Reviews Editor, Strife Journal
Nikolai is a historian and a PhD researcher at the Department of War Studies, King’s College London.
Formerly a lawyer and a corporate consultant, he has first-hand knowledge of contemporary Greece and Russia. It is the early modern world, however, that has stolen his heart. His current research focuses on the evolution of the culture and practice of war in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spain. Additionally, he retains a strong interest in the history of sixteenth-century Russia, and its reception and projection in the post-Soviet world. The treatment of war and history in art, literature and cinema has been a lifelong fascination.
