This course book is aimed primarily at students in higher education who have some prior knowledge of Russian. It is dividen into 64 lessons covering all the main areas of Russian grammar, including the declension of nouns; the conjugation of verbs, the use of cases, the forms and use of adjectives; pronouns, numerals and verbs of motion; verbal prefixes; gerunds and participles. It thus gives students the solid grammatical foundation which is essential if they are to go on to read, write and speak Russian well. The book includes many exercises and over 500 examples taken from the recent Soviet/ Russian press, introducing much useful contemporary vocabulary in areas such as politics, economics, social problems, ecology, medicine, and cultural and military affairs.

This is my bible for all questions relating to Russian grammar. The combination of thorough explanation of grammatical concepts with real-life examples from authentic sources makes this book ideal for learning. Exceptions are presented in a logical manner that provides for the formulation of rules and structure to account for their existence.
