Irina Gluschenko's book belongs to cultural studies by the subject but is more of an investigation by its genre. The reader is invited to verify the existence of parallel motives in three, apparently disparate, books: “The Drummer-Boy” by Arkady Gaidar (1938), “The Gift” by Vladimir Nabokov (1937), and “Master and Margarita” by Mikhail Bulgakov (1938). Revealing hidden similarities in the books written by a Red Army officer, an aristocrat in exile, and a former White Guard doctor allows capturing the Zeitgeist of the late 1930s. The author's approach is her method of almost arbitrary, noncausal parallelisms. The investigation extends beyond the literary scope: the author deals with previously unpublished archival records relating to the same, diabolic and mundane, historic background in which the enigmatic drummer boy's story was set, which was shared by the generation reading the book, and which determined the fate of Gaidar himself.
The book is intended for historians, scholars in cultural studies, philologists, and a broader audience interested in the Soviet past and its integration into world history.

The incentive to study business networks in Russia has recently sharply increased. This is dictated by the interests of the public policy, the transfer of control to the regional level, the creation of horizontal links between enterprises in regional business environments. Networks allow to operationalize the concepts of social and human capital, to jointly address the social and economic relations and their influence on the development of organizations. Socio-economic interactions in Russia are traditionally based on personal confidence, and the share of unpredictable interactions is extremely high in contrast to countries with developed market economies. The network approach can be used to study both internal and external interactions in an organization.
