Gorers Great Russian Culture and Meads Soviet Attitudes towards Authority: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Problems of Soviet Character were among the first attempts by anthropologists to analyze Russian society.They were influential both for several generations of anthropologists and in shaping American governmental attitudes toward the Soviet Union during the Cold War period.
