- Author: Jason C. Vaughn
This book is written to examine Russian public opinion, culture and society in the context of the lies, liars and untruths consistent with, but not exclusively part of, the rule of Russias second (and fourth) post-Soviet President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. Then, it is to assess what future there is for Russia in view of Russias peculiar socio-political culture of parallel truth and untruth.
Based on new research, literature and historical examination of untruth in Russia, using political, social, cultural, media and public opinion analysis, this study develops and applies a new and novel approach, or model(s), to the study of lies in Russia. Further, this book seeks to provide an understanding of Russias socio-political environment to outsiders not versed in the ins-and-outs of the influences, causes and reasoning for the Russian governments, and the Russian publics, reactions to publicized events.
