The focus of this research is the process of forming the image of “Turk” and Turkey in the Russian satirical journalism in an era of extreme aggravation of internal and external problems of the Ottoman and Russian Empires at the beginning of “the century of wars and revolutions”. The author shows how against a backdrop of wars (Italic-Turkish, Balkan wars, World War I, as well as during Great Russian Revolution), traditional stereotypes and image cliché of the “Turk” changed in the public opinion and practice of the power discourse of Russia. Reflection of these processes in the genre of magazine satire (caricatures, feuilletons, humorous verses, and anecdotes) gives a clear picture about the state of minds of the reading public in Russia in the early 20th cent. This study proves that in Russian satirical magazines “Turk”, as “the outher”, acted as peculiar “mirror”. It reflected the internal problems of the Russian society going through radical political, cultural, and socio-political changes. The Supplement includes short stories, anecdotes, feuilletons, hot new comments, and verses from Russian satiric magazines in modern orthography, but with original punctuation. The book is devoted to the memory of journalist and Orientologist Alexander Filippov.
