The phrase is symbolic of the somewhat light-hearted approach to history, which is quintessential to this book.

This is not an official history but a series of sketches, often humorous, on various aspects of Russian life over the centuries, of people, institutions, natural and political phenomena and local products of interest. The book also offers glimpses of Russias historical relations with the West, chequered, complex and fraught with chronic mutual misunderstanding.
