National Identity in Russian Culture by Simon Franklin
Book DescriptionWhat is Russia? Who are Russians? What is 'Russianness'? The question of national identity has long been a vexed one in Russia, and is particularly pertinent in the post-Soviet period. For a thousand years these questions have been central to the work of Russian writers, artists, musicians, film-makers, critics, politicians and philosophers. Questions of national self-identity permeate Russian cultural self-expression. This wide-ranging study, designed for students of Russian literature, culture, and history, explores aspects of national identity in Russian culture from medieval times to the present day. Written by an international team of scholars, the volume offers an accessible overview and a broad, multi-faceted introductory account of this central feature of Russian cultural history. The book is comprehensive and concise; it combines general surveys with a wide range of specific examples to convey the rich texture of Russian cultural expression over the past thousand years.

Holy Fools in Byzantium and Beyond, Hardback (April 2006)
The image of St Basil's Cathedral in Moscow's Red Square is a familiar Russian landmark. Saints such as Basil overturn the conventional concept of sainthood - what is saintly about them? This book aims to solve the mystery by exploring the figure of the holy fool in Byzantium and in later Russian history.
Byzantium-Rus-Russia, Hardback (October 2002)» View all books by Simon Franklin
The majority of the articles reproduced in this study are concerned with the twin illusions of cultural history - continuity and discontinuity. An examination of the translation of Christian culture, the book emphasizes how tradition is a matter of perception - a "making sense" of the past.
