Here is a fresh perspective on the last tumultuous years of the Soviet Union and an exquisitely poetic travelogue. With a keen grasp of Russia's history, a deep appreciation for its architecture and iconography, and an inexhaustible enthusiasm for its people and its culture, Colin Thubron is the perfect guide to a country most of us will never get to know firsthand. Here, we can walk down western Russia's country roads, rest in its villages, and explore some of the most engaging cities in the world. Beautifully written and infinitely insightful, "Among the Russians" is vivid, compelling travel writing that will also appeal to readers of history and current events--and to anyone captivated by the shape and texture of one of the world's most enigmatic culture.

    Among the Russian è un diario di un viaggio di Colin Thubron effettuato nella Russia degli anni 80, quando ancora si chiamava Unione Sovietica. L'autore, che ha viaggiato solo e in luoghi non propriamente turistici (Georgia, Armenia, Ucraina, ecc) redige un resoconto molto interessante sulla società russa del tempo e sul rapporto dei suoi abitanti con il regime socialista di allora. Lo stile è scorrevole, ed è molto buona la descrittività di luoghi e persone.
