Guy Mettan

Russophobia. A Thousand Years of Mistrust

foreword: Franco Cardini

BOOK: The measures taken and the accusations laid by western governments, mass media and public opinion against Russia and Russian president due to the Ukrainian crisis of 2014 and the recent actions in Syria are just the newest expressions of the attitude born a thousand years ago. Starting from the times of Charles the Great, Guy Mettan surveys the religious, geopolitical and ideological foundations for the several century-long phobia of Russia widely-spread first in Europe, then also in the United State of America. Taking a critical insight into the sources, the author reveals the weak points and mystifications of the prejudice forcing the West to maintain its tendency to hate the Russian “bear”  and  fear this country’s presumed imperialism.
