About this title

Synopsis:

What exactly is Russia?

Its very name conjures images of a vast and trackless landscape, where snow-covered onion domes peep over heavy stone fortress walls.

Its history is an epic populated by dreamers, madmen and geniuses who left an indelible imprint on the national character.

Above all, it is a place where the 21st century collides with the 12th, where the radiant future was born and the past is not really the past.

"It's Russia, My Son" pulls back the veil which has long shrouded this land in mystery, exploring the mindset of a people who have shaped, and continue to shape, the world we live in.

A romp through the history and culture of the world's largest nation, It's Russia, My Son is a quest to find out what really makes Russians tick. Attitudes towards power, love, friendship, religion and warfare have all played a role in forming the legendary Russian soul. By exploring these themes among many others, the reader will come away with a "roadmap" of the Russian soul, in all its glory and heartbreak, tragedy and triumph.

The book will appeal to general readers, as well as travelers, explorers and historians looking for a fresh vantage point from which to view one of the world's most intriguing nations.
