Abstract

The article deals with Dr. Konstantin Romanov’s English-language textbook for those Russian students who are making first steps in Canadian Studies. It is noted that for the first time a Russian Canadianist has produced a comprehensive study that gave a general and complex view of Canada and Canadians, and at the same time contained a lot of original material, interesting not only for students but also for professionals. It is concluded that Konstantin Romanov’s work went beyond the standard textbook and was a large-scale scientific work, which would be in demand by a wide and diverse reader’s audience. It also contains some recommendations on possible expansion and addition of the manual.
