The Culture of Russia


Though current events have brought Russia into the spotlight of late, many Americans still have only the haziest notion of Russian culture. This wide-ranging reference introduces the peoples, languages, and religions of Russia and also delves into such facets of Russian culture as sports, the media, holidays, traditional foods, and education. Chapters devoted to architecture, the visual arts, literature, and the performing arts highlight the best of Russia's cultural heritage, including the novels of Leo Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoyevsky, the films of Sergey Eisenstein, the music of Tchaikovsky and Sergey Prokofiev, and the churches of Pskov. Readers will find this volume to be a fascinating introduction to a rich, complex culture.
