Renaissance of Classical Allusions in Contemporary Russian Media takes a unique perspective on Russian media, culture, and society by bridging linguistic anthropology and media studies. Svitlana Malykhina analyzes the role of classical allusions in media as a vehicle for either indoctrination or resistance. She explores how media language reflects cultural beliefs and heritage, and forms social identity and group membership.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[T]hose who are interested in the transmission of culture and philosophy through a period of seeming deep break with the past will do well to consider Malykhina's argument that allusions to shared literary canon provide paths for comfortable ideas to continue to shape a nation's thinking. * The Russian Review *
A valuable guide to the use of allusions in Russian media, adding nuanced shades of gray to a field which is all too easy to perceive in ideological chiaroscuro. * Slavic and East European Journal *
From Ivan the Terrible to Vladimir Putin, from Ave Maria to Pussy Riot, Svitlana Malykhina skillfully illustrates how classical allusions are used by Post-Soviet media to fictionalize the social reality by deconstructing the past. Comprehensive, engaging, and deftly written, the book is perfectly suited for readers seeking to make sense of classical allusions in Russian media over the last several decades. -- Artemi Romanov, University of Colorado at Boulder
