We all know we believe or want to believe in fairy tales. We are all ready to answer Peter Pan’s monumental question whether we believe in fairy tales with a resounding “yes!” We all know that fairy tales are tied to real life experiences more than we pretend they aren’t. We ward off fairy tales and pretend that they are intended mainly for children because they tell more truth than we want to know, and we absorb fairy tales because they tell us more truth than we want to know. They are filled with desire and optimism. They drip with brutality, bluntness, violence, and perversity. They expose untruth, and the best are bare, brusque, and concise. They stamp our minds and perhaps our souls. They form another world, a counter world, in which social justice is more readily attained than in our actual world where hypocrisy, corruption, hyping, exploitation, and competition determine the outcome of social and political interactions and the quality of social relations. ______ RUSSIA: У старика была дочь-красавица, жил он с нею тихо и мирно, пока не женился на другой бабе, а та баба была злая ведьма… (читать далее только детям)

During the Russo-Japanese war of 1904, the captain Valentin Kulchitsky wrote «Advice to the young officer» which actually was the code of honor of a Russian officer. A ‘Russian officer’ is a special type of person. It is not so much a rank as it is a title unifying several eras of our history. And far from every Russian soldier can be truly considered a Russian officer. This of course is not about innate qualities. Resilience and nobility are learned. So how were people taught to be a Russian officer? In part there was a certain special albeit informal set of rules which a Russian officer was to follow. There were many versions over the years, but here is a list of some of them, which incidentally are appropriate not only for military personnel.

Now in its fifth edition, this definitive history of the Russian land and people builds on its success as a fascinating survey of two thousand years of struggle to harness vast resources and talents into a powerful and cohesive nation. From its beginning as a savage and exotic land, Russia underwent a complex evolution of political, social, and religious forces--the barbarism of its internal conflicts in seeming contradiction with its goals to advance in the realms of technology, art, education, and high culture. From the conflicts of the fantastically wealthy ruling class to the poor and oppressed masses emerged the Communist party and the enigmatic figures whose charismatic manipulation of political power reflected the myriad rulers before them. Finally, as the modern world watched, this great entity collapsed in a devastatingly brief time, millennia of precarious conflict proving too much for the tenuous coalescence of twentieth-century politics. Written in an engaging and accessible style, this text presents students with a comprehensive look at the momentous events and legendary figures which helped shape Russia's turbulent history.
