This valuable publication presents a diverse picture of the life of Great Britain as seen from today's Russia. It covers different aspects related to this country such as the foreign and domestic policies, the economy, the monarchy, the Church of England and other religious communities, gender issues and defense starting with the last quarter of the 20th century and until now. The authors analyze the transformation which took place in the system of international relations including the role of Great Britain in European integration and "special relationship" with the USA. They estimate Thatcherism, its economic achievements, and social consequences which sometimes were unacceptable for the public. The Russian view on British experience in political modernization is of great interest.
