From the Publisher"The title of this collection of 11 essays captures well its purpose, which is to offer 'an introduction to cultural discourses of Russian national identity.'" W.G. Moss, Eastern Michigan University, CHOICE
"The editors present an extremely useful collection of essays on many aspects of our perceptions of "Russia", "Russian", "Russians" and "Russianness". This book is extremely clearly structured, something which helps considerably given the immensity of the task and the ever-increasing range of the bibliography. As such, it is suitable for a wide readership, particularly students." Forum for Modern Language Studies
"Simon Franklin and Emma Widdis have conceived this excellent book to accomplish two goals: to provide and accessible overview of the theme of national identity in Russian cultural history and to offer nuanced case studies of how "notions of national identity function in cultural practice"(xii).
Carol J. Avins, Rutgers University, Slavic Review
