Doing Business in Russia provides an understanding of Russian business communication as well as a broad background in a variety of topics connected with Russian business and American-Russian business relations. Galina Timofeeva communicates an understanding of Russian business language as Russia develops and expands into the international business community and takes its place in the global economy. The author focuses on the language of business as used by the people in the Commonwealth of Independent States through a system of ten lessons. The book provides examples of formal Russian business and dialogues to provide an understanding of informal communication. This combination of language and business develops a broad understanding of the present status of the Russian business world, while enabling the reader to interact with that world.
Galina Timofeeva is Adjunct Professor of Russian at American University.
