Tracing the many journeys of Russian writers, politicians, and architects through the American territory, foregrounding the constant streams of cultural and technological transfer from the U.S.A. to Russia, and revealing the parallel fascination among Russian and American intellectuals with the ongoing pursuit of land colonization and modernization within their respective borders, Building a new New World: Amerikanizm in Russian Architecture weaves together a long thread of bonds and interdependencies between the two superpowers that counters the myth of a Cold War strictly marked by antagonistic worldviews.
