15.00

A quirky, opinionated, sometimes hilarious yet always thoughtful and authoritative guide, Michele A. Berdy looks at Russia's changing culture, politics, and daily life through language and the art of translation. She explores the language of popular and youth culture, politics, the workplace, culture (high and low), and the comical struggle of expats trying to cope with a foreign language and culture. The entries in this book are grouped thematically, and with the forty-eight page index, it can be used as a dictionary.

The Russian Word's Worth is essential reading for students and teachers of Russian, translators, Russia-watchers, and anyone who wants to understand Russia today.
