"Russisch für Dummies" bietet einen leichten Einstieg in die russische Sprache. Los geht's mit einer Einführung in die Besonderheiten der russischen Sprache, in die Betonung sowie in die Grammatik einschließlich der Fälle. Dann wird es auch schon praktisch: Jedes Kapitel beschäftigt sich mit einer Alltagssituation: Sie lernen, wie Sie sich auf Russisch vorstellen, etwas beschreiben, telefonieren oder ein Hotelzimmer reservieren. Dabei lernen Sie die wichtigsten Sätze, Umschreibungen und Begriffe, die Sie im Alltag benötigen und bekommen nebenbei viele Informationen zu Alltag und Kultur in Russland. Am Ende jedes Kapitels gibt es eine kleine Übung, mit der Sie Ihre erworbenen Sprachkenntnisse prüfen können. Im Anhang des Buches finden Sie Verb-Tabellen und ein kleines Russisch-Deutsch-/Deutsch-Russisch-Wörterbuch. Auf der beiliegenden CD gibt es die Sprachübungen aus dem Buch zum Anhören und Nachsprechen.

An introduction, complete in one volume, to the history of Russia from medieval times to the fall of Khrushchev and beyond. A study of the geographical setting in which the Russian state grew to its present super-power status is followed by five chapters which discuss the political, social, and economic history of the country, and four final chapters examine respectively the role of the Church, Soviet government and politics, the economy of the Soviet state, and the international relations of the USSR. Each chapter has been specially commissioned for this volume, and the writers are acknowledged experts in their fields. Every chapter is followed by a guide to further reading. This is perhaps the most comprehensive and authoritative collaborative history of Russia yet to appear. It will be read as a continuous account, and will also be consulted as a standard reference guide in libraries of universities, colleges, and schools wherever Russian and Soviet history, European history, and international relations are studied. It forms the first part of the three-volume Companion to Russian Studies, the two other parts of which deal with Russian language and literature, and Russian art and architecture respectively.

This book, designed for students who have already developed a basic competence in Russian, aims to broaden and improve their vocabulary by providing detailed information on groups of Russian words with related meanings. It is invaluable as a guide to finding the right word for the context. In order to enhance understanding of the structure of the Russian vocabulary, groups of synonyms are organised under Russian (rather than English) headwords. All entries are accompanied by examples of usage and English glosses and there are two indexes allowing users quickly to locate words in Russian or English. The book takes full account of register variation, indicating the degree of formal or informal use. It is an essential reference for college students and undergraduates as well as teachers and other professional linguists seeking access to the finer nuances of the Russian language.

From its first edition the purpose of Walford has been to identify and evaluate the widest possible range of reference materials. No rigid definition of reference is applied. In addition to the expected bibliographies, indexes, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and directories, a number of important textbooks and manuals of general practice are included. While the majority of the items are books, Walford is a guide to reference material. Thus periodical articles, microforms, online and CD-ROM sources are all represented. In this volume a particular effort has been made to improve coverage of the latter two categories.
