ID : 196   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Nearly three decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the loss of its superpower status, we have witnessed Russia’s resurgence as another center of international influence. We will explore the formative historical events that shaped the Russian psyche, from the nation’s Viking origin and imperial past to the great but failed social experiment of the 20th century to build a new society of perfect equality. To understand what we should expect next from Russia, we will examine the changes it has undergone recently and gain insight into the daily life of the Russian middle class—their views of themselves and the world, their values and aspirations.
