520    Americans Experience Russia analyzes how American scholars,
       journalists, and artists envisioned, experienced, and 
       interpreted Russia/the Soviet Union over the last century.
       While many histories of diplomatic, economic, and 
       intellectual connections between the United States and the
       Soviet Union can be found, none has yet examined how 
       Americans' encounters with Russian/Soviet society shaped 
       their representations of a Russian/Soviet 'other' and its 
       relationship with an American 'west.' The essays in this 
       volume critically engage with postcolonial theories which 
       posit that a self-valorizing, unmediated west dictated the
       colonial encounter, repressing native voices that must be 
       recovered. Unlike western imperialists and their colonial 
       subjects, Americans and Russians long co-existed in a 
       tense parity, regarding each other as other-than-European 
       equals, sometime cultural role models, temporary allies, 
       and political antagonists. In examining the fiction, film,
       journalism, treatises, and histories Americans produced 
       out of their 'Russian experience,' the contributors to 
       this volume closely analyze these texts, locate them in 
       their sociopolitical context, and gauge how their 
       producers' profession, politics, gender, class, and 
       interaction with native Russian interpreters conditioned 
       their authored responses to Russian/Soviet reality. The 
       volume also explores the blurred boundaries between 
       national identities and representations of self/other 
       after the Soviet Union's fall
