The purpose of this seminar is to increase our understanding and appreciation of Russian history and culture so that we can better understand their point of view.
Russia has a greater area than any other country in the world. It has considerable resources, both material and human. It is little wonder that Russia is a major player on the world stage and that they have, a number of times, threatened conflict with the United States. If our country is to avoid disastrous conflict it will need citizens who have a reasonable level of understanding of Russian history and culture. This seminar will, we hope, provide that understanding.
The moderators will provide a list of recommended publications and other resources
