ABSTRACT
Editorial. Suggests that Russia's new state emblem, dominated by a double-headed eagle that faces two directions, is a fitting symbol of the two competing cultural traditions of Russia: the pull of Eastern collectivism and the predominance of the state and the Western pull of freedom and the predominance of individual choice. Russia's experience with democracy and market economics; Reasons for pessimism; Nostalgia for days of bread and law and order.
