This volume introduces readers to an age-old question that has perplexed both Russians and Westerners. Is Russia the eastern flank of Europe? Or is it really the heartland of another civilization? In exploring this question, the authors present a sweeping survey of cultural, religious, political, and economic developments in Russia, especially over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Based on the inter-disciplinary Russian studies program at Dickinson College, this splendid collection will complement many curricula. The text features highlight boxes and selected illustrations. Each chapter ends with a glossary, study questions, and a reading list.

Review:

""This is a well-organized and expertly written interdisciplinary survey of major cultural trends in Russia, covering topic as varied as the foundations of Russian Orthodoxy, music and literature, politics, and contemporary youth culture. Russia and Western Civilization "is an excellent resource for college courses. The informative chapters, written in a clear style, are accessible to students at all levels, while lists of suggested readings should satisfy more advanced students and scholars who want to continue their inquiry."
