About this title

Synopsis:

A coffee table book with beautiful color photos of Russia, plus appreciative Introductions by Armand Hammer, Donald M. Kendall, and Gerard Piel.

From Library Journal:

There may be some libraries that missed Dieter Blum's Russia ( LJ 7/80) and its many companions, but even they should be hesistant about making Jones's volume of photographs of Russia their first choice. What sets it apart is that it concentrates on landscapes without people. Facing each full-page photo is a short excerpt of text (from Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, etc.) about either the specific locale or a similar one. Jones's approach emphasizes the universal rather than peculiarly Russian aspects of the land and the people's response to it, both an advantage (theoretically, at least, creating sympathy with the Russian experience) and a disadvantage (however beautiful, the photos and text tell us nothing new). The book will be best appreciated by those who love Russian literature. Carol Rasmussen, M.L.S., Natl. Ctr. for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Col.
