The great disagreement amongst intellectuals about whether Russia should become a western European country or whether its historic destiny lies in its distinct, Slavic identity, is still a subject of active debate today. The debate forms a part of the story in 'The Duel' chapter of RUSSKA.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
October, derived from the Latin Octo, which means eight, was actually the eighth month of the year in the original Roman calendar of ten months. It wasn’t until the Julian calendar was introduced by Julius Caesar in the first century BC that January and February were added. The Julian calendar remained the predominant calendar in Europe through the sixteenth century, until it was amended to the Gregorian calendar we still use today.
