Rockin' in Red Square by Walter Grünzweig,Nana Rinehart Summary

International educators can take the high road towards rigorous investment in the ideals of true cultural exchange or continue down the low road to customer satisfaction and design programs that reduce or eliminate challenges. International education structured according to the latter principle is little more than just another product in the global marketplace. In spite of the process of "globalization" and partly because of it, international education faces a major crisis. This volume, with contributors from Austria, Chile, France, Germany, The Netherlands, and the United States, sets forth a timely and provocative critique of international education and assesses its future under radically different conditions than those in place twenty years ago. Walter Grnzweig is professor of American literature and culture at Universitt Dortmund. He holds adjunct professorships at the University of Pennsylvania, University of New York at Binghamton and Canisius College. Nana Rinehart is associate director of the International Student Exchange Program.

Black Knight in Red Square by Stuart M. Kaminsky Summary

A Soviet cop stars in this novel of “sweaty-palmed suspense . . . Equal parts likeable characters and believable dangers” (The Washington Post Book World). The Moscow Film Festival is in town, and the elite artists of the East and West have convened at the legendary Metropole Hotel to drink, gossip, and flirt. But the party is about to come crashing down. Four men—one American, one Japanese, and two Russians—will all be dead by morning, poisoned. To keep the killings under wraps, the Kremlin hands the investigation over to the famously discreet police investigator Porfiry Rostnikov. A hard-boiled cop with more than three decades’ experience navigating the deadly jungle of the Soviet bureaucracy, Rostnikov is about to find himself both in the international spotlight and in the crosshairs of a terrorist, who is targeting foreigners to embarrass the Soviet state and will happily sacrifice any Russian who gets in the way. This Edgar Award–nominated follow-up to Death of a Dissident confirms Stuart Kaminsky’s status as “the Ed McBain of Mother Russia” (Kirkus Reviews).

Red Square Dance by GERALD LEWIS GEIGER Summary

RED SQUARE DANCE--a novel by Gerasim Geiger-Garagayev © 2005 RED SQUARE DANCE deals with an evercurrent topic: the Fate of Women through the Ages. RED SQUARE DANCE pays tribute to a Moscow ballerina as representative of the “Calvary of Women”--throughout the World and in History--as lovers, mothers, bearers of burden, and custodians of a people’s soul. The story of RED SQUARE DANCE is based on a visit to Russia in 1994-1995 and lengthy familiarity with “Things Russian.” With love stifled by the allpowerful-and-everpresent State, with irrepressible human yearnings, expressed in soaring leaps of mind and body, Katya, the ballerina, and Patrick, her American lover-protector-husband, fight--inspired and in despair--to assert what human grace and genius are left to them after their mauling by life in a world at war with itself--as it was, is now, and shall... RED SQUARE DANCE paints a touching portrait of the romantic side of harassed human nature, so often ideologically ravished, culturally manipulated, and affectively stunted. The healing--and indomitable--mystery of the Church is balmed upon the two dramatis personae as she unites Katya and Patrick, these two battered children of the Cold War, in the breathtakingly beautiful ceremony of matrimony, hinting at wedded bliss, to be tragically terminated as the snowflakes gently fall on them in Red Square. As a point of interest, after an all-too-brief flirtation with “demokratsiya,” Holy Mother Russia is reverting to form, popping up on our radar screen now as a big blip that may yet again turn into the menacing “bogey” it once was. A tragic love story-ballet. American boy meets Russian girl--they fall in love--create a thing of timeless beauty--and die for it in snow-dusted Red Square in the swirlwind of the 1991 Moscow people’s rising. Katya, the heroine of the tale, is the embodiment of Russian--yes, worldwide--womanhood: suffering yet rising to glory as the BELOVED of the Lord, as the custodians of a nation’s soul.

Western Intellectuals and the Soviet Union, 1920-40 by Ludmila Stern Summary

Despite the appalling record of the Soviet Union on human rights questions, many western intellectuals with otherwise impeccable liberal credentials were strong supporters the Soviet Union in the interwar period.

Focusing in particular on the work of various official and semi-official bodies, including Comintern, the International Association of Revolutionary Writers, the All-Union Society for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries, and the Foreign Commission of the Soviet Writers' Union, this book shows how cultural propaganda was always a high priority for the Soviet Union, and how successful this cultural propaganda was in seducing so many Western thinkers.

Words Will Break Cement by Masha Gessen Summary

From National Book Award winner Masha Gessen, the heroic story of Pussy Riot, who resurrected the power of truth in a society built on lies. On February 21, 2012, five young women entered the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. In neon-colored dresses, tights, and balaclavas, they performed a “punk prayer” beseeching the “Mother of God” to “get rid of Putin.” They were quickly shut down by security, and in the weeks and months that followed, three of the women were arrested and tried, and two were sentenced to a remote prison colony. But the incident captured international headlines, and footage of it went viral. People across the globe recognized not only a fierce act of political confrontation but also an inspired work of art that, in a time and place saturated with lies, found a new way to speak the truth. Masha Gessen’s riveting account tells how such a phenomenon came about. Drawing on her exclusive, extensive access to the members of Pussy Riot and their families and associates, she reconstructs the fascinating personal journeys that transformed a group of young women into artists with a shared vision, gave them the courage and imagination to express it unforgettably, and endowed them with the strength to endure the devastating loneliness and isolation that have been the price of their triumph.

Red War by Vince Flynn,Kyle Mills Summary

This instant #1 New York Times bestseller and “modern techno-thriller” (New York Journal of Books) follows Mitch Rapp in a race to prevent Russia’s gravely ill leader from starting a full-scale war with NATO. When Russian president Maxim Krupin discovers that he has inoperable brain cancer, he’s determined to cling to power. His first task is to kill or imprison any of his countrymen who can threaten him. Soon, though, his illness becomes serious enough to require a more dramatic diversion—war with the West. Upon learning of Krupin’s condition, CIA director Irene Kennedy understands that the US is facing an opponent who has nothing to lose. The only way to avoid a confrontation that could leave millions dead is to send Mitch Rapp to Russia under impossibly dangerous orders. With the Kremlin’s entire security apparatus hunting him, he must find and kill a man many have deemed the most powerful in the world. Success means averting a war that could consume all of Europe. But if his mission is discovered, Rapp will plunge Russia and America into a conflict that neither will survive in “a timely, explosive novel that shows yet again why Mitch Rapp is the best hero the thriller genre has to offer” (The Real Book Spy).

Wolves Eat Dogs by Martin Cruz Smith Summary

A Moscow detective is sent to Chernobyl for a frightening case in the most spectacular entry yet in Martin Cruz Smith’s Arkady Renko series. In his groundbreaking Gorky Park, Martin Cruz Smith created an iconic detective of contemporary fiction. Quietly subversive, brilliantly analytical, and haunted by melancholy, Arkady Renko survived, barely, the journey from the Soviet Union to the New Russia, only to find his transformed nation just as obsessed with corruption and brutality as was the old Communist dictatorship. In Wolves Eat Dogs, Renko returns for his most enigmatic and baffling case yet: the death of one of Russia’s new billionaires, which leads him to Chernobyl and the Zone of Exclusion—closed to the world since 1986’s nuclear disaster. It is still aglow with radioactivity, now inhabited only by the militia, shady scavengers, a few reckless scientists, and some elderly peasants who refuse to relocate. Renko’s journey to this ghostly netherworld, the crimes he uncovers there, and the secrets they reveal about the New Russia make for an unforgettable adventure.

With Love by Arcelia Watson Summary

It has been a joy to write this memoir as a legacy for my son Dennis and my daughter Susan and my grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I have fantastic family and friends. I retired after 54 years as a public school teacher. I loved teaching eighthgraders. I feel that my students have given me more than I gave them. I have spent my years searching and growing and always trying to be a responsible person. I am living a charmed life. In my journey I have dealt with negatives such as alcoholism, divorce, death, codependency, and Alzheimer's. I am a child of an alcoholic; I married and divorced an alcoholic; I was a codependent. Alzheimer's is one of the cruelest diseases there is. The disease erased all that made my mom a unique human being. I hope my story can inspire. Sports have given me much pleasure. I love football, basketball, IRL racing, and NASCAR. My favorites are the Green Bay Packers, the Illini Dan Wheldon, Danica Patrick, Brett Favre, Jeff Gordon, and Jimmie Johnson. Traveling has been the most invigorating experience for me as I have traveled the US and the world. It was so neat to walk the Great Wall of China. I am living a very passionate, positive, and fulfilling life. It is not my age that defines me; it is what I do with my life. With love; my name is Arcelia.

Red Chameleon by Stuart M. Kaminsky Summary

This thrilling crime novel features “the best cop to come out of the Soviet Union since Martin Cruz Smith’s Arkady Renko” (San Francisco Examiner). After a lifetime in service to the Soviet Union, police inspector Porfiry Rostnikov may have found a way out. A high-profile homicide leads him to a cache of documents packed full of incriminating Kremlin gossip, which he uses as a bargaining chip to secure exit visas for himself and his Jewish wife. But just before the deal is concluded, Brezhnev’s death sends the nation into turmoil, and makes escape impossible. His career derailed, the veteran cop is reduced to investigating penny-ante murders—one of which may lead somewhere very big indeed. An elderly Jewish man is shot to death in his bathtub by killers who steal nothing but a worthless brass candlestick. And as the brutal Moscow summer wears on, the police find themselves the targets of car thieves and snipers. With the help of his two faithful lieutenants, Karpo and Tkach, Rostnikov needs to find a way to solve these cases and salvage his good name—if it doesn’t cost him his life. The Edgar Award–winning Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov series is one more reason why New York Times–bestselling author Tony Hillerman says, “Never miss a Kaminsky book.”
