A Russian Journal
€ 14.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Steinbeck and Capa´s account of their journey through Cold War Russia is a classic piece of reportage and travel writing. Just after the Iron Curtain fell on Eastern Europe, Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Steinbeck and acclaimed war photographer Robert Capa ventured into the Soviet Union to report for the New York Herald Tribune. This rare opportunity took the famous travelers not only to Moscow and Stalingrad - now Volgograd - but through the countryside of the Ukraine and the Caucasus. Hailed by the New York Times as ´´superb´´ when it first appeared in 1948, A Russian Journal is the distillation of their journey and remains a remarkable memoir and unique historical document. What they saw and movingly recorded in words and on film was what Steinbeck called ´´the great other side there ? the private life of the Russian people.´´ Unlike other Western reporting about Russia at the time, A Russian Journal is free of ideological obsessions. Rather, Steinbeck and Capa recorded the grim realities of factory workers, government clerks, and peasants, as they emerged from the rubble of World War II-represented here in Capa´s stirring photographs alongside Steinbeck´s masterful prose. Through it all, we are given intimate glimpses of two artists at the height of their powers, answering their need to document human struggle. This edition features an introduction by Steinbeck scholar Susan Shillinglaw. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Als Sergei Jaroff 1921 den Don Kosaken Chor gründete, legte er den Grundstein für eine sechzigjährige Chortradition, die eng mit der Weltgeschichte verbunden ist. Häufig musste das Ensemble seinen Sitz verlagern, von Russland nach Berlin, von dort nach New York, später nach Paris. Zahlreiche Einspielungen begleiteten die Karriere der Donkosaken, die ihr Augenmerk stets auf russische Volkslieder legten.

Russian Angst
€ 18.00 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Als der Journalist Thomas Franke zum ersten Mal nach Russland reiste, musste man eigentlich keine Angst mehr haben: Das Sowjetreich war zusammengebrochen, der russische Bär bleckte nicht länger die Zähne. Heute fürchten sich wieder viele Menschen vor - und ebenso: in - Putins Russland. Seit mehr als 20 Jahren bereist Franke Russland, von 2012 bis 2016 lebte er in Moskau: Zeit für zahllose Begegnungen und Gespräche zwischen der Hauptstadt und der Krim, zwischen Wolgograd und Sibirien. Mit scharfem Blick und präzisem Ton erzählt Franke von Alltag, Geschichte und Politik und erlebt als mitfühlender Chronist eine Entwicklung, die er nicht für möglich gehalten hatte: die Reaktivierung sowjetischer Reflexe, die Rückkehr der Angst in die russische Gesellschaft. Diese Angst, so Franke, hat das ganze Land infiziert: Die Staatsmacht unter Putin nutzt sie, um ihre Autorität zu stärken und die Moral der Opposition zu untergraben. Und zugleich schürt sie die Angst vor Macht- und Identitätsverlust, vor der weltpolitischen Marginalisierung: In der russischen Seele gärt eine explosive Mischung.

Russian Thinkers

Required reading for fans of Tom Stoppard´s The Coast of Utopia-the landmark investigation into Russian history and thought Few, if any, English-language critics have written as perceptively as Isaiah Berlin about Russian thought and culture. Russian Thinkers is his unique meditation on the impact that Russia´s outstanding writers and philosophers had on its culture. In addition to Tolstoy´s philosophy of history, which he addresses in his most famous essay, ´´The Hedgehog and the Fox,´´ Berlin considers the social and political circumstances that produced such men as Herzen, Bakunin, Turgenev, Belinsky, and others of the Russian intelligentsia, who made up, as Berlin describes, ´´the largest single Russian contribution to social change in the world.´´ For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Russian Roulette

The Russian Connection is a story of political skullduggery unprecedented in American history. It weaves together tales of international intrigue, cyber espionage, and superpower rivalry. After US-Russia relations soured, as Vladimir Putin moved to reassert Russian strength on the global stage, Moscow trained its best hackers on US political targets and exploited Julian Assange and Wikileaks to disseminate information that could affect the 2016 election. The Russians were wildly successful and the great break-in of 2016 was no ´´third rate burglary.´´ It was far more sophisticated and sinister -- a brazen act of political espionage designed to interfere with American democracy, and at the end of the day, Trump, the candidate with business ties to Russia, won. And millions of Americans were left wondering, what the hell happened? This story of high-tech spying and multiple political feuds will be told against the backdrop of Donald Trump and his strange relationship with Putin, and his inner circle of advisers with profitable ties to Russia, most notably Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort. The Russian Connection will chronicle and examine all these bizarre events and relationships, explain the stakes, and seek to answer one of the biggest questions in American politics: How and why did a foreign government infiltrate the country´s political process and implant its tentacles in Washington?

The Russian Canvas
€ 52.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Russian Canvas charts the remarkable rise of Russian painting in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the nature of its relationship with other European schools. Starting with the foundation of the Imperial Academy of the Arts in 1757 and culminating with the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881, it details the professionalization and wide-ranging activities of painters against a backdrop of dramatic social and political change. The Imperial Academy formalized artistic training but later became a foil for dissent, as successive generations of painters negotiated their own positions between pan-European engagement and local and national identities. Drawing on original archival research, this groundbreaking book recontextualizes the work of major artists, revives the reputations of others, and explores the complex developments that took Russian painters from provincial anonymity to international acclaim.
