Russian Way by Zita Dabars

Book Description

Here's an up to the minute, insider's look at how Russians live and work and how they feel about everything from family to religion to entertainment. "Explore The Russian Way" of doing things, and you'll uncover a fascinating world imbued with kindness, generosity, superstition, and surprises. Russian character comes to life as you follow favourite pastimes such as communal baths, the circus, mushroom gathering, and watching television - especially soap operas. View life from the perspective of average Russians ('poor man's caviar' and flea markets) and 'new' (rich) Russians (international dining and upscale shops).Historic background, evolving changes, and Russian words and phrases are woven into every chapter. Find out how Russians feel about advertising (suspicious), clothing (conservative), 'gifts' and bribes (necessary), dating (not until college), and appropriate behaviour (bring flowers to dinner, always check your coat at the t heater, and don't compliment a new baby to avoid the 'evil eye'). "The Russian Way" is brimming with practical and lively facts on: home life, meals, and housing; healthcare, education, politics, religion, and professions; hotels, dining, shopping, and entertainment; language, gestures, literature, and the Russian soul; and the creative community, including controversial artist Tsereteli. This handy guide will help you understand and appreciate Russian way from Arkhangelsk to Vladivostok.
