Viewed as one of the most tumultuous, momentous movements in the history of world literature, Romanticism and its origins have long been studied by literary critics. In this book, Nicholas Riasanovksy, primarily known as an eminent historian of Russia, offers a refreshing and appealing new interpretation of Romanticism's origins, goals, and influence. The original surge of Romantic thought occurred in England and Germany in the middle to late 1790s, and within a decade had spent itself. Riasanovsky focuses on the explosion of the Romantic impulse, and searches for the origins of the revolutionary vision that made the early Romantic poets in England and Germany take an entirely different view of the world. Pairing two British authors (Wordsworth and Coleridge) with three German authors (Novalis, Friedrich Schlegel, and Wackenroder), Riasanovsky demonstrates that, for all the cultural differences between them, they represent variations on the same "emergence." Essentially, all five were obsessed with the problem of their eternal striving and inability to reach their own goals. All five abandoned the Romantic ideology within a decade and, having supported the goals of the French Revolution in the 1790s, retreated into political conservatism or religious orthodoxy. Riasanovsky identifies the heart of Romanticism as being the creature of a pantheistic religious culture. He stresses that Romanticism was produced only by Western Christian civilization, with its unique view of humankind's relationship to God. The Romantics' frantic and heroic striving for unreachable goals mirrors Christian beliefs in human inability to adequately address God, speak to God, or praise God. Further, Riasanovsky argues that Romantic thought had important political implications, playing a key role in the rise of nationalism in Europe. Offering a historical examination of an area often limited to literary analysis, this book gracefully makes a larger historical statement about the nature and centrality of European Romanticism. Not limited to the cultural historian and the literary critic, The Emergence of Romanticism also makes available to the general reader a jargon-free look at the heady days of Romanticism

Russian identities : a historical survey by Nicholas V Riasanovsky( )

"In this new book, Nicholas Riasanovsky, one of the foremost Russian historians, applies a lifetime of study to answer a question that has puzzled historians, politicians, and nationalists for centuries: what does it mean to be Russian? As he shows, the answer to this question has varied over the centuries. The Russian people have lived under a number of different political, social, and economic structures, as the very borders of what is considered Russia have shifted. Rather than impose a false sense of coherence on a past full of contradictions, Riasanovsky explores the many different aspects of Russian identity to explain what it has meant to be Russian during different eras, carrying this monumental and engrossing story from the pre-history of the East Slavs to the post-communist present."--Résumé de l'éditeur

L'Histoire de la Russie, de Nicholas V. Riasanovsky, est considérée comme l'un des principaux livres de référence sur le sujet. Cet ouvrage a connu un grand succès depuis sa parution dans la collection «Bouquins» en 1987 et plusieurs rééditions successives. Aujourd'hui réactualisé avec une postface signée par Françoise Thom, spécialiste réputée de la Russie, il couvre toute la période qui a suivi la fin de l'époque communiste.Dans la première partie de sa postface, Françoise Thomretrace les évolutions de la politique intérieure russe sous Boris Eltsine puis Vladimir Poutine, et à travers elles la mise en place d'un nouveau système politique. Elle s'attache ensuite à dégager les grandes lignes de la politique extérieure du Kremlin en en faisant ressortir les grands tournants diplomatiques. Elle montre les éléments de continuité de l'histoire de ce pays et analyse l'imbrication particulière entre politique étrangère et politique intérieure, aujourd'hui tendues l'une et l'autre vers un seul objectif : la restauration de la puissance russe.Une synthèse utile et éclairante pour mieux comprendre,par-delà l'actualité immédiate, la véritable histoire de ce peuple
