Vladimir Medinskiy's new book offers the reader the opportunity to get, better acquainted with some myths about Russia in an quick, easy and entertaining way. The book covers some of the most interesting, colorful and controversial debates in Russian history and the most popular myths about Russia: vodka and its role in some incredible adventures, Russia's problems (apart from the roads and having too many fools), some lessons from the Bastille and the Civil War, the last testament of Peter the Great, amongst many others. In his book, the author tackles some of the most pressing questions about Russia: whether you can trust Russians, the meaning of progress in Russian terms, who really won at the Battle of Borodino two hundred years ago, why Russians call Napoleon 'the consummate liar', and also, whether Russians are the true originators of petrol, mobile phones and the cinema. Myths About Russia is Medinskiy's original and humorous take on the subject: in this book, he diligently unravels the myths surrounding this vast and complex nation, picking them apart to uncover the truth about Russia and her fascinating history.
