Beautifully written and gloriously vivid, Natasha's Dance is a triumphant assertion of the greatness of Russia's culture and the remarkable lives of those who have shaped it.

He is the author of Peasant Russia, Civil War, A People's Tragedy, Natasha's Dance, The Whisperers and Just Send Me Word.Figes’s claim is that the Russian language was ‘lacking’ because it had adopted so many French, German, and English words (never mind that this is how every distinct language has developed in the entire history of language). For the period from roughly 1760 to 1960 it contains histories of Russian literature, painting, ballet and classical music. But as his book reaches beyond the October Revolution, he ceases to be interested in the influences exerted by "the people" on the cultural elites. CULTURAL BIASWriting an historical textbook is a complicated task, in no small part because it is an incredibly political action.

How did Mongol occupation affect local culture, and did that local culture affect Mongol traditions and art?Orlando Figes disecciona muchas falsas creencias y explora las verdaderas raíces que llevan a la destrucción de los zares y la entrada del comunismo. When she is stirred by a folk song she ha never heard before, she instinctively takes up the rhythm of the dance that accompany it - in spite of the fact that she by social class and education was far removed from the village culture it represented. I'm tempted to say that this is a great book because like Russian art it has a soul, but that sounds presumptuous since I've not an expert on any Russian art and I've never been to Russia. But, my brief review cannot do justice to the depth and breadth of the coverage of this fascinating book which made me want to explore more about Russian culture. Bütün bunların yanında Rus şiirine katkısı açışından göz ardı edilemeyecek kadar değerli olan Mayakovski’nin yaşamını müthiş bir inançla çarpıtıp, Stalin karşıtı görüşlerini bütün rejime karşıymış gibi gösterme çabası ise Mayakovski ile ilgili ayrıntılı bilgi sahibi olmayan okuyucuları yanlış yönlendirecek seviyede diye düşünüyorum.
