I don't like Ivan personally....though I admit I like him a little more than Peter simply because Ivan killed his son by accident and Peter tortured and killed his. In that sense I am biased; but sometimes in reading the things he did I kind of understand why he did them and the insecurity he felt; though the black KKK was definitely a sign of a man who had too much power. But it was never safe to be a ruler of Russia.
What books have you read on Ivan?

Most of the books I've read were in Russian, so sorry for any mispronunciation and/or mistranslation in the book and author names.
I've can recall off the top of my head the following books that dealt, directly or indirectly, with the Tsar's reign.
- "Reforms by Ivan the Terrible: essays on socio-economical history of XVI century Russian" by Zimin.
- "Ivan IV the Terrible" by Volodohin.
- "The Livonian War" by Koroliuk
- "Ivan the Terrible and his psychological condition" by Kovalyoski
- "Ivan the Terrible and Peter the Great: concept of the first Monarch" by Panchenko (not sure about the author, will check later)
- "History of the state of Russia" by Karamzin (either volume 7, or 8)

The only books that tried to view Ivan IV from a different perspective were:
- "Ivan the Terrible: Sadist or martyr" by Pronina. I cannot say I particularly enjoyed the book.
- "The truth about the first Russian Tsar: who and why tries to destroy the image of Lord Ioann Vasilyevich" by Fomin.

The first ever momentum to Ivan IV will be inaugurated to commemorate the 450th anniversary of Oryol in August, 2016.

The monument to Ivan the Terrible will be in Oryol | PRAVMIR.RU
