So if you have not already booked, please make your reservation as soon as
possible, as we should like to see all the remaining 39 seats pre-booked!
Throughout history the written impressions from visits to Russia by
perceptive foreigners have assumed a tremendous significance. This applies
to the reports of Baron von Herberstein in 1517,of Britain's Giles
Fletcher at the end of the 16th century, of Adam Olearius in the 17th
century, of the Marquis de Custine in 1839, and of Andre Gide in 1936.
What has changed, and what is still the same?
Jonathan Dimbleby's epic journey was made into a 5 part television series

Our talk takes place on the very first day of the issue of the papeback
