Предлагаемый вниманию читателя сборник в чем-то продолжает эту большую традицию, и в то же время ее существенно меняет. Круг авторов весьма широк: ведущие российские политики, видные региональные лидеры, депутаты Госдумы, авторитетные политические эксперты и политические публицисты. Сам сборник стал возможен как острая политическая рефлексия, вызванная президентским Посланием-2005, его смысловое ядро образуют тексты Владислава Суркова. Так что всех имеющих вкус к «политическому» ждет увлекательное чтение. There is a unique intellectual tradition in Russian political culture – at every critical stage in our history a group of people known for their non– conventional thinking would make an general attempt to comprehend the present and present its vision of the Russia's future. The present collection draws upon this noble tradition in some ways while at the same time it significantly modifies it. The range of authors is wide enough: leading Russian politicians, prominent regional leaders, deputies of the State Duma, reputable political experts and political writers. The collection owes its appearance to a critical political reflexion triggered by the 2005 presidential address to the nation with the texts of Vladislav Surkov forming its conceptual core. The book makes a savvy reading for all those who relish all political things.
