This is a personally detailed chronicling of the activities of everyone who has ever taught Russian anywhere in the State of Arizona and an exemplification of the subsequent interesting fates of the students these teachers of Russian have potentiated. 1600 people are mentioned in this treatment: Professors at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, where the instruction of Russian began in the State in 1946, and at the University of Arizona in Tucson, where Prof. Joe Malik, Jr. founded the State''s first academic Department of Russian in the 1960''s; teachers of Russian in the State''s community colleges and high schools; and three generations of the students of Russian in all the state''s educational institutions and even some commercial enterprises. The book is illustrated with charts, graphs, sketches, and numerous photographs, and includes lists of Dobro Slovo, the National Slavic Studies Honorary''s, members and a comprehensive index. The book is available from the publisher, Institute for Issues in the History of Science (IIHS) of Tempe,AZ and Perm, Russian Federation (ISBN 978-1-4303-2355-6), and at www.lulu.com in three ways, and is advertised on www.RussianAz.org. The cover, showing Moscow''s St. Basil''s Cathedral perched precariously on a cliff of Arizona''s Grand Canyon (iconic to the way the State''s Russian programs are precariously perched in its educational institutions'' administrative priorities) has been nominated by the publisher for a national graphic design prize at www.americandesignawards.com.
