Russian Conservatism (eBook, PDF)
12,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Paul Robinson´s Russian Conservatism examines the history of Russian conservative thought from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present. As he shows, conservatism has made an underappreciated contribution to Russian national identity, to the ideology of Russian statehood, and to Russia´s social-economic development. Robinson charts the contributions made by philosophers, politicians, and others during the Imperial, Soviet, and post-Soviet periods. Looking at cultural, political, and social-economic conservatism in Russia, he discusses ideas and issues of more than historical interest. Indeed, what Russian Conservatism demonstrates is that such ideas are helpful in interpreting Russia´s present as well as its past and will be influential in shaping Russia´s future, for better or for worse, in the years to come. For the past two centuries Russian conservatives have sought to adapt to the pressures of modernization and westernization and, more recently, globalization, while preserving national identity and political and social stability. Through Robinson´s research we can now understand how Russian conservatives have continually proposed forms of cultural, political, and economic development seen as building on existing traditions, identity, forms of government, and economic and social life, rather than being imposed on the basis of abstract theory and foreign models.

Russian Memories (eBook, ePUB)
0,49 € *

It is perhaps a little superfluous for one of my years to write an introduction for one so well known and so much esteemed and admired as Madame Novikoff. And yet it may seem just, if it does not seem vain, that a full-hearted tribute should come to her from this generation which profits by the result of her life and her work-the great new friendship between England and Russia. She is one of the most interesting women in European diplomatic circles. She is a picturesque personality, but more than that she is one who has really done a great deal in her life. You cannot say of her, as of so many brilliant women, ´´She was born, she was admired, she passed!´´ Destiny used her to accomplish great ends. For many in our society life, she stood for Russia, was Russia. For the poor people of England Russia was represented by the filth of the Ghetto and the crimes of the so-called ´´political´´ refugees; for the middle classes who read Seton Merriman, Russia was a fantastic country of revolutionaries and bloodthirsty police; but fortunately the ruling and upper classes always have had some better vision, they have had the means of travel, they have seen real representative Russians in their midst. {2} ´´They are barbarians, these Russians!´´ says someone to his friend. But the friend turns a deaf ear. ´´I happen to know one of them,´´ says he. A beautiful and clever woman always charms, whatever her nationality may be, and it is possible for her to make conquests that predicate nothing of the nation to which she belongs. That is true, and therein lay the true grace and genius of Madame Novikoff. She was not merely a clever and charming woman, she was Russia herself. Russia lent her charm. Thus her friends were drawn from serious and vital England. Gladstone learned from her what Russia was.

Notes on Russian Literature (eBook, ePUB)
0,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

´´Notes on Russian Literature´´ is a work of the classic of Russian literature and one of the best world-class novelists of FM Dostoevsky (1821-1881). *** The writer´s reflections on Russian poetry and prose reflected the philosophical, social and moral ideas that formed the basis of his great novels. Accurate and profound judgments about Pushkin, Nekrasov, Leo Tolstoy, Gogol and Belinsky give an understanding that Russian literature is not only an artistic phenomenon, it is also spiritual selflessness. Dostoevsky is also the author of such works as ´´Little Hero´´, ´´Bobok´´, ´´Winter Notes on Summer Impressions´´, ´´Petersburg Dreams in Verses and Prose´´, ´´Mr. Prokharchin´´, ´´Centenary´´, ´´Sliders´´, ´´Novel in nine letters ´´,´´ Pushkin´s speech ´´,´´ The verdict ´´. The significance of Dostoevsky´s work for world literature and philosophy is difficult to overestimate. It can be called without exaggeration the most famous and readable Russian writer who gained fame not only because of the artistic merits of his prose, but also because of their philosophical and moral content.

Iran and Russian Imperialism (eBook, PDF)
32,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Rather than a centralized state, Iran in the nineteenth century was a delicate balance between tribal groups, urban merchant communities, religious elites, and an autocratic monarchy. While Russia gained an increasingly dominant political role in Iran over the course of this century, Russian influence was often challenged by banditry on the roads, riots in the cities, and the seeming arbitrariness of the Shah. Iran and Russian Imperialism develops a comprehensive picture of Russia´s historical entanglements with one of its most important neighbours in Asia. It recounts how the Russian Empire strived to gain political influence at the Persian court, promote Russian trade, and secure the enormous southern borders of the empire. Using hitherto often neglected documents from archives in Russia and Georgia and reading them against the grain, this book reveals the complex reactions of different groups in Iranian society to Russian imperialism. As it turns out, the Iranians were, in the words of the Russian orientalist Konstantin Smirnov, ´´ideal anarchists,´´ whose resistance to imperial domination, as well as to centralized state institutions more generally, impacted developments in the region in the century to come. Iran´s troubled relationship with the wider world continues to be a topic of considerable interest to historians, yet little focus has been given to Russia´s historical connections to Iran. This book thus represents a valuable contribution to Iranian and Russian History, as well as International Relations.
