Russia imagined is holy, orthodox, romantic, national, popular, imperial, autocratic and eschatological. Life in the real Russia has more often been nasty, brutish and short by western standards, a consequence of agricultural backwardness, grinding poverty, and cultural isolation.

Some of his topics are western thought and non-western nationalism in the Russian soul, Bolshevism in the west from Leninist totalitarians to cultural revolutionaries, changing directions in Russian.
