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.

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.
