A fresh look at Russian society, this book examines Russian attitudes towards work, particularly with respect to cultural values, and socioeconomic and related political behavior. The book begins with a discussion of the historical development of the Russian perceptions of work as a complex process of negotiations between the Russian and his contemporary social institutions and practices. Examples from contemporary culture and the arts are used as a backdrop for the discussion. Using cultural history and works of art as a means to view a non-Western route to modernization, the author provides fresh, original insight into understanding the challenges of contemporary Russian society.
