MY RUSSIA., Ustinov, Peter.  Inscribed.

Author Name    Ustinov, Peter. Inscribed.

Title   MY RUSSIA.

Publisher    Macmillan, London, (1983), first edition.

Seller ID   16016

224 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0333341295 INSCRIBED ON HALF-TITLE PAGE, "BEST WISHES PETER USTINOV". Map endpapers, profusely illustrated in b&w and color with photographs and reproductions. "Russia has always been considered a sleeping giant by those frightened by the spectre of an awakened giant. But people forget that Russia was once very small at a time when Poland and Lithuania were very large, and that she was retarded by the invasion of the Golden Horde from Asia, to which she paid a humiliating tribute for several centuries. In other words, Russia's struggle for identity, and indeed for survival, was a protracted and heroic one against crushing odds, and her national character must be judged on such a basis, and not merely as a state which has subsequently occupied over one-sixth of the world's surface. She has been invaded far more often than she has invaded, and lost far more sons and daughters on her own soil than she has lost sons on foreign fields. This is then no apology, no devil's advocacy, but a detective story to the roots of a national character which often frightens and often mystifies, but the roots of which lie in the humanity and inhumanity which are common to all mankind." Minor edge wear, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light waviness to fore-edge of textblock, minor browning to edges of textblock. Dust jacket has very light rubbing. VG/VG+
