1991 : liquidant de son propre chef l’Empire soviétique et le système communiste, Boris Eltsine croit avoir payé le prix de la modernité et attend que l’Europe l’accueille à bras ouverts. Vingt ans plus tard, que reste-t-il de cette illusion ? Hélène Carrère d’Encausse montre ici la somme des malentendus, soupçons, épreuves de force, occasions manquées entre le pouvoir russe - auquel Poutine a rendu puissance extérieure et fierté intérieure - et les Occidentaux. Sa grande originalité est de ne pas se contenter de nous présenter la Russie « entre deux mondes », mais aussi « le monde vu de Russie ». Une Russie confrontée à des problèmes immenses – démographie en chute, corruption galopante, terrorisme... – qui mise sur sa force extérieure. Mais elle rencontre partout la puissance américaine, acharnée à l’écarter du « grand jeu » énergétique et à la remplacer dans sa « zone d’intérêts ». Quelle vision sous-tend aujourd’hui la stratégie russe ? Asiatique ? Démocratique et européenne ? Ou passerelle entre les deux mondes ? Historienne de la Russie, Hélène Carrère d’Encausse, membre depuis 1991 de l’Académie française, dont elle est Secrétaire perpétuel, a notamment publié aux éditions Fayard, La Gloire des nations, Le Malheur russe, Nicolas II, Lénine, Catherine II et Alexandre II.

A New York Times Notable Book and winner of the Boston Review Fiction Prize: “[One of the] great novels of this century.” (Donald Newlove, The Philadelphia Inquirer) Hailed as extraordinary from coast to coast, this bestselling novel by National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist Andreï Makine traces a sentimental journey that embraces many of the dramatic events in Russia during the twentieth century. Here is a poignant story of a Soviet boy’s ascent into manhood, and his extraordinary affection for his mysterious grandmother, who captivates him with vivid stories of her childhood in France—a distant country far more elegant, carefree, and stimulating than Russia in the 1970s and ’80s. This epic tale is full of tenderness and passion, pain and heartbreak; mesmerizing, in every way. “Skillfully constructed and elegantly written . . . A major novel.” —Victor Brombert, The New York Times Book Review

The forces of Light and Darkness have co-existed in a delicate balance for hundreds of years ... until now. Even as the Night Watch polices the Dark Others--among them vampires, witches and shape-shifters--a chain of mysterious events triggers a dreaded, age-old prophecy: An immortal with special powers will come to switch sides, shattering the balance and unleashing an apocalyptic war unlike any the world has ever known.

Here, the author examines Russian thinking about the Orient before the Revolution of 1917. He argues that the Russian Empire's bi-continental geography and the complicated nature of its encounter with Asia have all resulted in a variegated understanding of the East among its people.

This book presents an interdisciplinary look at the complex nature of historical, political, and cultural ties between Africa and Russia. A diverse group of accomplished historians, sociologists, political scientists, and journalists have contributed essays that reveal and explain a variety of "invisible links" tying together the seemingly incongruent cultural and historical traditions of Africa and Russia. From African presence in early imperial Russia to the Soviet adventures in colonial and post-colonial Africa to the role and predicament of African Russians in the post-Soviet society, this volume stakes out a vast emerging field for further scholarly research and interpretation.

"This book is truly epic. . . . The reader will probably wish there was a thousand more pages." —The Huffington Post Picking up where Fall of Giants, the first novel in the extraordinary Century Trilogy, left off, Winter of the World follows its five interrelated families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—through a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the great dramas of World War II, and into the beginning of the long Cold War. Carla von Ulrich, born of German and English parents, finds her life engulfed by the Nazi tide until daring to commit a deed of great courage and heartbreak . . . . American brothers Woody and Chuck Dewar, each with a secret, take separate paths to momentous events, one in Washington, the other in the bloody jungles of the Pacific . . . . English student Lloyd Williams discovers in the crucible of the Spanish Civil War that he must fight Communism just as hard as Fascism . . . . Daisy Peshkov, a driven social climber, cares only for popularity and the fast set until war transforms her life, while her cousin Volodya carves out a position in Soviet intelligence that will affect not only this war but also the war to come.

Si, à partir de Pierre le Grand, la Russie a tout fait pour s’arrimer à l’Occident, un voile recouvre l’autre versant de son identité : sa composante orientale. Au xixe siècle, la construction d’un vaste empire colonial pousse la puissance russe toujours plus loin à l’est et au sud, du Caucase jusqu’à l’océan Pacifique. Entre la fondation de Saint-Pétersbourg en 1703 et la création de Vladivostok en 1860, on assiste à une véritable « orientalisation » de l’Empire. Militaires, savants et diplomates, écrivains et artistes nourrissent alors l’imaginaire de la Russie et fortifient sa vocation universelle. De Catherine II à Lénine, de Pouchkine à Diaghilev, cet ouvrage offre pour la première fois une présentation générale de la colonisation russe en Orient, des rêves suivis parfois de réveils cruels qui l’ont accompagnée, et dont certains durent encore. Lorraine de Meaux est agrégée et docteur en histoire. Spécialiste de la Russie, elle a dirigé l’ouvrage Saint-Pétersbourg. Histoire, promenades, anthologie et dictionnaire (Robert Laffont, collection « Bouquins », 2003).

Masha dreams of becoming one of the great European auteurs. But first she must escape the drudgery of her daily existence: a father who drinks, a dull and empty city, the fear of getting stuck in a life she doesn’t want. So as soon as she is old enough she heads to the big city to claim her spot alongside the great filmmakers of the day. But she is unprepared for the sacrifices she must make to succeed. Lovers come and go – the college teacher, the cameraman, the renowned German actor – but Masha must decide whether she is prepared to forsake her happiness for her art: how far is she willing to go? Part philosophical treatise, part bildungsroman, Masha Regina is at once disturbing, intellectually challenging and unfailingly entertaining, and marks the arrival of an exciting new voice in Russian and international literature.

Winner of the VCU Cabell First Novelist Award Winner of the American Library Association's Sophie Brody Medal Finalist for the National Jewish Book Award A singularly talented writer makes his literary debut with this provocative, soulful, and sometimes hilarious story of a failed journalist asked to do the unthinkable: Forge Holocaust-restitution claims for old Russian Jews in Brooklyn, New York. Yevgeny Gelman, grandfather of Slava Gelman, “didn’t suffer in the exact way” he needs to have suffered to qualify for the restitution the German government has been paying out to Holocaust survivors. But suffer he has—as a Jew in the war; as a second-class citizen in the USSR; as an immigrant to America. So? Isn’t his grandson a “writer”? High-minded Slava wants to put all this immigrant scraping behind him. Only the American Dream is not panning out for him—Century, the legendary magazine where he works as a researcher, wants nothing greater from him. Slava wants to be a correct, blameless American—but he wants to be a lionized writer even more. Slava’s turn as the Forger of South Brooklyn teaches him that not every fact is the truth, and not every lie a falsehood. It takes more than law-abiding to become an American; it takes the same self-reinvention in which his people excel. Intoxicated and unmoored by his inventions, Slava risks exposure. Cornered, he commits an irrevocable act that finally grants him a sense of home in America, but not before collecting a price from his family. A Replacement Life is a dark, moving, and beautifully written novel about family, honor, and justice.
