Descripción Basic Books, 2013. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Sunday Times (London) "As he follows the locations of the priest''s life, Bullough mixes his own research into Russia''s modern history with stories of encounters on the road, a combination as potent as the vodka that is bringing down the nation. Out of the story of Father Dmitry''s life and the reality of a nation drowning in drink, Bullough draws an extraordinary portrait of a nation struggling to shed its past and find peace with itself. Sunday Telegraph (London) "Part biography, part history, Oliver Bullough''s book is also an attempt to demarcate the front lines of the battle for the Russian soul. The subject matter is rendered palatable by Bullough''s brisk, lucid style and his skilful interweaving of historical context with his own rich experience of Russia. He has a talent for sketching the people he meets, often administering a welcome dose of humour, and he appreciates the absurd, in the best Russian tradition. Bullough''s questing, roving spirit is admirable. An ambitious and wide-ranging journey into the heart of a great, sad country." The Guardian "More than a thesis on the economics of grain distillation, The Last Man in Russia is a contemporary history refracted through the story of one extraordinary man. Weaving together the narrative strands.and bolstering them with solid research, [Bullough] charts the decline of the Russian nation. He is particularly good at conjuring key moments, vivid characters and credible dialogue, and at flipping between the small incident and the big picture. Imagining is a whole lot easier with such a lively, well-written and commanding narrative to guide us." Daily Telegraph (London) "In this superb hybrid of travel and social analysis, The Last Man in Russia , Bullough casts a despairing eye on a nation''s death through alcohol. In pages of raw, poetic prose, Bullough travels to Father Dmitry''s birthplace in western Russia and on to his prison-Gulag, 1,250 miles from Moscow. Throughout, he dilates sorrowfully on the self-denial of vodka drinkers. The Last Man in Russia is distinguished by the excellence of its writing and its lucid, unsparing gaze. Literary Review "Eccentric but beguiling. [Bullough] has a fine eye for telling, classically Russian scenes and moments." Kirkus Reviews "In a vivid, colorful account of his journeys, Bullough starkly chronicles the visible evidence of Russia's despair in abandoned villages, ruined farms, shuttered factories and ubiquitous drunkenness.Part biography, part travelogue, a perceptive, sad and very personal analysis of the decline of a once-great nation." Publishers Weekly "Pursuing Father Dmitry's story takes Bullough on a crisscross journey of modern day Russia, affording glimpses into the lives of Russians, which is rich with vodka but little else, least of all hope. While most of what Bullough finds in the past and the present shows why one Russian priest told him, "I look at the future with pessimism," the book does end with a glimmer of hope, which is a fitting tribute to Father Dmitry and to Bullough's ability to find and illuminate a story worth telling." Library Journal "A compelling read, Bullough's book is a must for anyone interested in the sociological, psychological, or personal effects of faith and political change on a nation struggling to find its identity and sustain hope." Russian Life Magazine "Dudko''s story is indeed a fascinating one and worthy of the space and time that Bullough gives it. And the manner of his telling - as much a modern travelogue far off beaten Russian paths as a biography - is both unusual and engaging. For in understanding Dudko, we better understand all that Russians have been through.the book ends on a high note, with the nascent hope that filled 2011''s winter demonstrations." Booklist "An inquisitive traveler, Bullough conveys a vividly descriptive impression of contemporary Russia." Andrew Meier, author of The Lost Spy: Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0465074987

Descripción The Perseus Books Group, United States, 2013. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. 236 x 157 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Russia is dying from within. Oligarchs and oil barons may still dominate international news coverage, but their prosperity masks a deep-rooted demographic tragedy. Faced with staggering population decline--and near-certain economic collapse--driven by toxic levels of alcohol abuse, Russia is also battling a deeper sickness: a spiritual one, born out of the country s long totalitarian experiment. In The Last Man in Russia, award-winning journalist Oliver Bullough uses the tale of a lone priest to give life to this national crisis. Father Dmitry Dudko, a dissident Orthodox Christian, was thrown into a Stalinist labor camp for writing poetry. Undaunted, on his release in the mid-1950s he began to preach to congregations across Russia with little concern for his own safety. At a time when the Soviet government denied its subjects the prospect of advancement, and turned friend against friend and brother against brother, Dudko urged his followers to cling to hope. He maintained a circle of sacred trust at the heart of one of history s most deceitful systems. But as Bullough reveals, this courageous group of believers was eventually shattered by a terrible act of betrayal--one that exposes the full extent of the Communist tragedy. Still, Dudko s dream endures. Although most Russians have forgotten the man himself, the embers of hope that survived the darkness are once more beginning to burn. Leading readers from a churchyard in Moscow to the snow-blanketed ghost towns of rural Russia, and from the forgotten graves of Stalin s victims to a rock festival in an old gulag camp, The Last Man in Russia is at once a travelogue, a sociological study, a biography, and a cri de coeur for a dying nation--one that, Bullough shows, might yet be saved.
