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appeared in 1948, A Russian Journal is the distillation of their journey and remains a remarkable memoir and unique historical document.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.

Russian Thinkers
€ 12.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

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 Cosmism
€ 22.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Cosmism emerged in Russia before the October Revolution and developed through the 1920s and 1930s; like Marxism and the European avant-garde, two other movements that shared this intellectual moment, Russian Cosmism rejected the contemplative for the transformative, aiming to create not merely new art or philosophy but a new world. Cosmism went the furthest in its visions of transformation, calling for the end of death, the resuscitation of the dead, and free movement in cosmic space. This volume collects crucial texts, many available in English for the first time, by the radical biopolitical utopianists of Russian Cosmism.

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.

Die Journalistin Swetlana Dmitirjewna Lebedew möchte endlich aus der Lifestyle-Ecke ihrer Zeitung heraus. Am liebsten würde sie über den anstehenden Weltmeisterschaftskampf des Boxers Kasakow berichten. Als Michail, der verantwortliche Redakteur, ihr bei dem wöchentlichen Meeting wieder verweigert, im Bereich Sport mitzuarbeiten, nötigt sie ihn eine Wette einzugehen: Wenn sie es schafft, etwas aus Kasakows Leben zu enthüllen, das bis dato niemand kannte, bekommt sie den Bericht über den Kampf! Kurz danach besucht Sweta die Boxschule von Kasakow, wo sie auf dessen Manager Rodion trifft, der sie nach einem unerfreulichen Gespräch einfach hinauswirft. Als ihr Mentor, der Modeschöpfer Agafon Sejzew, sie einlädt, ihren angestammten SM-Klub zu besuchen, nimmt sie die Einladung gerne an. Im Klub stolpert sie erneut über Rodion. Es kommt zu einem Schlagabtausch, der in einer heißen Session endet. Völlig überwältigt taucht sie in die Welt aus Dominanz und Unterwerfung ein. Swetlana brennt darauf Rodion wieder zu sehen, aber da ist ja immer noch die leidige Sache mit der Wette. Außerdem scheint dieser Rüpel, kaum Interesse an einer Beziehung zu haben!
