Реальность и мифы современной отечественной политической культуры

The article is dedicated to the analysis of the content and approaches to the study of Russian political culture from the standpoint of the modern heuristic potential of Russian historical and political science presented in the book by A. Lukin and P. Lukin "Mind Russia to understand. Post-Soviet political culture and national history." The authors seek to present an objective and unbiased analysis of the political culture of post-Soviet Russia through a retrospective of such significant periods of the Russian history as Veliky Novgorod and the Soviet era. One of the authors of the book is a medieval historian, specializes at studying the "West", speaks European languages, works in Germany and Eastern Europe; another is an international political analyst, is an expert on researching the "East", has experience working in the UK, the US and China. Knowledge of various languages, the ability to work with various sources and literature, and acquaintance with dissimilar historical and cultural traditions helped the authors to complement each other in their desire to look at Russia as objectively as possible.
