Russophobia vs. Westernophobia. Foreword.


Russophobia vs Westernophobia

In my previous posts on Russian stereotypes in the West (Part I, Part II) I mentioned Russophobia. But what is it, really? De Custine wrote the ‘Bible of Russophobes’, La Russie en 1839, but he wasn’t the first ‘prophet’. He just planted a seed in a fertile soil. As you know – you reap what you sow.

Thus, in my new series of posts I will study Russophobia in the West and Westernophobia in Russia as a part of identity and nation building, political ideology and sociocultural fear of the Other, etc. Stay tuned!
