Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Russia's Revolution is a vivid, fast-moving, and absorbing book, impeccably scholarly in its methods, facts, and references, yet entirely devoid of academic jargon. The vagaries of privatization are traced in the battle over Russia's land and in the saga of the Russian middle class. The birth of a new business ethic, pride in one's work, and passion for excellence are recorded in a chapter on the recovery of Russia's glorious gastronomic tradition." "The breadth and depth of this collection of essays is extraordinary, chronicling both the political and cultural development in life in Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Leon Aron is one of America's top Russia scholars and commentators, and his writing provides a wealth of details and keen insights that only someone who has closely watched Russia all his life and is intimate with its history, culture, and language can supply. For anyone who is interested in Russia today and the events of the last fifteen years, this book will be invaluable."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
