From the Publisher”A provocative exploration of moral masochism as an undercurrent in the tragic history of the Russian people. Rancour-Laferriere's study should be read by all those interested in the nature of Russian nationalism and the myths surrounding Russian national character.”
-Joanna Hubbs,author of Mother Russia: The Feminine Myth in Russian Culture
”[Rancour-Laferriere] sees in Russian masochism one of the attractions and beauties of Russian culture. Sure to raise eyebrows, if not hackles.”
"A vast, provocative study . . . psychologically illuminating."
