About Us

We connect Russophiles with the Russia they love. 

Our tribe of readers is connected through books, periodicals, and publications that unravel the mysteries of Russia; together we share a passion for Russian history, culture, language, and society. 

We get your Russophile "affliction." 

Like you, we are frustrated with mainstream media’s shallow coverage of things Russian. We are also disgusted by Russophobes who see only the worst, or who equate Russia with temporary residents of the Kremlin. But those who try to paint a rosy, Pollyanna picture can be just as detrimental.

We love Russia and Russians especially, but we don't we gloss over problems (which every country and people has). We just try to put them in perspective. And we believe in digging deeper, looking more long-term. 

Allow us to be your guide.

Take the first step in gaining a clearer view on all things Russian.

Join our email list and you will start to receive our FREE, weekly e-newsletter, The Russia File. Every Thursday it delivers the news on Russia that others miss, but in an offbeat, fun style. It’s like having a savvy friend write you a weekly letter about what’s going on in the world's biggest country... with pictures!

Then, every Monday you will get a short email with quick summaries of articles we published on our website over the past week, making it easy to click through and explore just the items that are of interest to you.

Finally, every few weeks, we send out a special email-subscribers-only discount offer on one or our books.

That's it. Full disclosure of everything you will be getting. And of course you can unsubscribe at any time.
