Overview

Practical advice on what to expect and how to behave in different social circumstances in a country with a turbulent past and paradoxical present

The Russian orthodox religion is unique, Russian history is tragic, and the people are unpredictable. Russia's military and political power, as well as the rich contribution of its art and culture, is the result of an inner dynamic not always understood by outsiders. This book explores the connections between Russia's turbulent past and its paradoxical present.
