OVERCOME HISTORY? MACROSOCIOLOGICAL APPROACH TOWARDS UNDERSTANDING PAST AND PROJECTING FUTURE OF RUSSIA (Rozov N.S. Track and Pass: Macrosociological Foundations of Russia’s Strategies in 21 Century. – Moscow: ROSSPEN, 2011)
According to the opinion of A.Vashchuk and A.Savchenko, the key word for understanding the book under review is “discussion” since its author illuminates core problems and possible directions of finding ways to solve them rather than provides evaluations and gives receipts. If this book draws enough attention and provokes broad discussion, the controversial nature of many of its statements will become one of the main factors of success. The worst scenario for the book is the situation if it attracts only a small number of experts. In this case the book only has chances to be dismantled into separate fragments for future criticism, and “the wood” would not be seen for “the trees”.
