    Excellent Russian Pictorial and Travel Narrative

    My wonderful Russian zhena (Tatiana) bought these books for me and they are truly fantastic. I certainly consider myself a Russophile and these books are great additions to all the other books that I have. The images are full of what it means to be Russian with beauty, life and clarity. I highly recommend both books. --Tony

Description

Buy both Spine books at once, get the fullest picture of Russia, and save with this special deal. 

The idea of the Spine of Russia project was to get behind the headlines about worsening US-Russian relations and collect powerful images and honest human stories that offered a more subtle, complex picture of Russia than is normally seen in American mass media. We sought to tell the stories of Russians whose life and work is taking the country forward, and to ask them what they felt patriotic about, what was important to them.

If you want to understand another country, you need to ask their people what is important to them.

This package includes both Spine books:

1) A museum quality hardcover photo book, The Spine of Russia is a vivid portrait of modern Russian life, and includes over 40 environmental portraits of “heroes” interviewed in depth by the journalists, each of whom was asked the timely question: "Do you consider yourself a patriot, and if so, of what and why?"

Organized in a unique, non-linear style to allow readers to construct their own trip across Russia, this is a volume you will treasure for years to come.

2) The 330-page book Driving Down Russia's Spine. Far more than a travel essay, this book intertwines fascinating subject profiles with digressions into historical and cultural themes relevant to understanding modern Russia. It is a story told with humor and with the insight derived from the author’s three decades of intimate interactions with Russia. 

Taken together, these books provide an in-depth, human, balanced view of modern Russia.
