The mystery of Russian soul’ phenomena: how is it to be explained? Which are there the traditions of welcoming guests? What is the entrepreneurship in Russia like? Why are we being often misunderstood in the West and what could be done for a better understanding of each other? Where did the stereotypes about Russia come from and to what extent are they true to life? ‘Russian World’ is planning to answer these and many other questions.

 

Russian fairy tales and the statehood foundations, relations to the West, peasantry and family matters, the role of women in society and the Orthodox faith in Russia, education and the importance of book in Russia, the intelligentsia and its historical impact, the Russian table manners – all of them, strange as it may seem, in amazingly easy and clear language have been covered by Anna Pavlovskaya in her ‘Russian World books’.

On the flyleaf of the book one could read that ‘Russian World’ has been recommended as a guide for would-be cultural and regional studies. Though, we find this book worth reading by everyone who is interested in taking a new look at this country and its historical past. The book reveals the mutual cultural interchange of nations and their shared historical values and common heritage which have long ago led to the creation of an entity called ‘the Russian world’.
