Russian humor has made it attainable for Russians to outlive in stipulations within which different international locations, now not outfitted with related humor, might have given up and died. i might argue that Russian humor additionally performed a important position in discrediting and, ultimately, subverting the Soviet nation: there's not anything worse for a countrywide chief than to be laughed approximately and Leonid Brezhev generated an grand approximately of jokes. as a result of that complicated and occasionally even tragic heritage, Russian humor could be darkish, impolite and occasionally even outright suggest. yet continually funny.

This is usually an intensely political ebook including numerous of Scott's such a lot vigorous rants and reader's reviews. whereas examining this publication you'll get to chortle, but in addition to mirror and occasionally to get angry.

Get Scott's booklet, and you may additionally subscribe to the hundreds of thousands of "Kremlin brokers" available in the market who refuse the lie and like to make fund of the absurd global we are living in.
