Course Discription

The course will offer an analysis of current life and politics in Russia by looking at the roots of Russian politics, economics, and culture. It will begin with a historical overview meant to provide a useful context for the second segment of the course - a discussion of contemporary economics, social customs, sexual climate, crime situation, education system, and other topics. The course will be particularly useful for students who plan to visit Russia, but should also be of interest to students of American and European history, as well as political science majors.
