GeoHistory: Russian Identity

This month marked the centenary of the October Revolution. Much was written in the Western press about how Russia’s new identity and politics could be seen in how it chose to observe one of the 20th century’s most influential events. This month’s TV News in Russia from GeoHistory.Today looks at how Russian media covered not only the centenary, but also other major factors now forming Russia’s new identity: history, patriotism, Russia’s perceived place in the world, and how it defines the “other” (i.e., America). The telling and fascinating list is accompanied by extended commentary and links to the original reports.
