How Russia Shaped the Modern World:
From Art to Anti-Semitism, Ballet to Bolshevism
Steven G. Marks

Book Description
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Deep, perceptive, and thought provoking, this is a work of breathtaking sweep and imagination, massive learning, and unflagging interest. It is also beautifully written--flowing and full of intellectual excitement."--Richard Stites, Georgetown University

"This is an astonishingly broad and ambitious project, one that at first seems impossible but then slowly grows on the reader--in plausibility, synthesizing intelligence, and explanatory power. Marks seems to know the contours of everything relating to Russian ideas, their politics as well as their expression through literature, visual art, dance, theater, both in domestic contexts and around the world. His thesis will cause a stir. But Russian culture has rarely appeared as monumentally integrated and influential as within the pages of this book."--Caryl Emerson, Princeton University
