Russian Airships By Alastair Reid
Paperback: $18.24

This 350 page book, the very first to be written in English on the subject, tells the story of airship development in Russia. Staring with Kostovitch's design in 1880, it goes on to list the... More > Imperial Army's acquisitions which at the time made Russia the third most powerful aviation force in the world. The use of these airships in WW1 is discussed. After attempts to bring about a post-war revival, overflights by ‘Graf Zeppelin’ triggered a drive within the Soviet government to produce their own fleet of rigid airships - the ‘Lenin Squadron’. The reality of the 1930’s efforts by the State led DZS organisation fell short, but with the Nobile's help, DZS produced a number of airships, including the record-breaking USSR-V6. After this a gradual decline set in, culminating in the loss of the ‘Pobeda’ in 1947. The author reviews various design efforts of the 1970’s, together with modern concepts, before concluding with a more detailed look at the latest designs being produced by the RosAeroSystems company.< Less

It assumes no prior knowledge of Russian,... More > and is intended for ambitious beginners, or more advanced students seeking a highly structured review of the language.

It is structured as a series of 50 daily lessons, which build upon one another and give a clear sense of progress. It is the equivalent of a semester of intensive college-level study of Russian.

Prints in 3-5 business days
This is Book 4 in a new series of Russian language textbooks that began with Russian Through Propaganda. This volume continues with in-depth coverage of intermediate to advanced grammar, with... More > particular emphasis on word formation: how Russian takes simple roots and, with prefixes and suffixes, builds more nouns, verbs, and adjectives from them. By grouping verbs and other words into families, and learning specifically how Russian borrows foreign words, our knowledge of vocabulary and ability to analyze new vocabulary is greatly expanded, preparing us to tackle a major work of Russian literature: Crime and Punishment. Along with an introduction to Dostoevsky's life and thought, this book features a substantial abridged (but otherwise unedited and unsimplified!) and annotated version of the novel, focusing on the main plot line: the murder, and the quest for redemption.

More > scale of big data. Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less
