The Oxford Russian Dictionary by P. S Falla( Book )

51 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 3,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive and up-to-date dictionary is the first to reflect the changes in the Russian language since the fall of the Iron Curtain. Special emphasis is placed on current idioms and colloquial usage with thousands of examples to illustrate their use. With the fall of the Iron Curtain, the Russian language has exploded, responding to new idioms, terminology, and usage pouring in from the West. Anyone wishing to keep up with contemporary Russian will search existing dictionaries in vain for such words as "cash machine," "road rage," "mobile phone," and many other terms reflecting the rapidly changing reality in the former Soviet Union. This completely revised edition of The Oxford Russian Dictionary is the first to incorporate those changes. Offering a comprehensive look at both languages, it includes over 185,000 words and phrases and 290,000 translations. The dictionary provides exceptional coverage of regional Russian, British, and American dialects as well as of modern idioms and colloquial usage, with numerous illustrative examples. It also includes all common abbreviations and acronyms, such as DTP, ROM, AIDS, and others; helpful advice on difficult points of grammar; and pronunciation in the International Phonetic Alphabet for every English headword, an indispensable aid for Russian speakers. Features include: Over 185,000 words and phrases, and 290,000 translations to provide comprehensive coverage of contemporary Russian and English; All the latest vocabulary from "hyperinflation" to "multimedia" and from "cash machine" to "electronic security system" and "road rage"; Special emphasis on current idioms and colloquial usage with thousands of examples to illustrate their use; The latest business, computing, and specialist vocabulary along with common abbreviations and acronyms; Attractive layout to facilitate ease of use, improved typography, and Russian alphabet at the foot of each page

Main currents of Marxism : the founders, the golden age, the breakdown by Leszek Kołakowski( Book )

11 editions published between 1978 and 2008 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on powerful historical and philosophical insight, Main Currents of Marxism traces the intellectual foundations of Marxist thought from Plotinus through Hegel to Lukacs, Sartre, and Mao. Leszek Kolakowski reveals Marxism to be "the greatest fantasy of our century ... an idea that began in Promethean humanism and culminated in the monstrous tyranny of Stalinism." Long before the overwhelming majority of historians, journalists, and intellectuals around the world came to see the devastation wrought by autocratic, state-sponsored socialism, Kolakowski pointed to the shortcomings of a system doomed to failure." "Recognized when it was first published for its profound historical insights and for its exposition of how the Communist hierarchy was quickly corroding from the inside, this forceful work has influenced several generations of scholars and historians. Despite decades of major political change, Main Currents of Marxism remains as accurate and incisive as ever. In a new preface and epilogue, Kolakowski reexamines the collapse of international Communism in light of the last tumultuous years."--Jacket
