Product description

Review

"Scintillating. . .an exceptional history of Russian culture and a joy to read." --"San Francisco Chronicle" "Stunning and ambitious. . .Figes captures nothing less than Russians' complex and protean notions regarding their national identity." --"The Atlantic Monthly" "Staggering. . .A vivid, entertaining, and enlightening account of what it has meant to be culturally a Russian over the last three centuries." --"Los Angeles Times" "[A] masterly work." --"New York Review of Books" "A big, bold, interpretative cultural history." --"Foreign Affairs"
