This unique Russian-language textbook draws on printed mass media, especially up-to-date Internet media sources, to introduce intermediate and advanced students to varied aspects of modern Russian life. Presenting fascinating material on armed conflicts, government and politics, business and economics, accidents and catastrophes, the new Russian class society, problems of youth, and more, the book provides the cultural and linguistic background necessary to better understand Russian media reports and to gain insights into Russia's current political, economic, and cultural issues.

Features of the book include: vocabulary development exercises; pre- and post-reading classroom activities; information on Russian media, government, politics, economics, and military; a Web site with extensive Internet tasks, interactive dictionary, updates, instructor material, and links to relevant information; and a multimedia supplement based on current Russian television programs.
