Siberia and the exile system by George Kennan( Book )

171 editions published between 1889 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American journalist George Kennan (1854-1924) spent many years travelling in and writing about Russia. After the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881, Kennan wanted to go to Siberia to examine the penal system and the punishment of political exiles. In this unflinching account, published in two volumes in 1891, Kennan gives vivid descriptions, accompanied by extensive illustrations of the prisons and labour camps and the harsh lives of the people forced to live there. This journey also led to a personal transformation for Kennan himself - he started out as a supporter of the tsarist government but when he returned to the United States, he had become an advocate of political revolution in Russia. In Volume 1, he inspects the overcrowded holding prison of Tyumen, where everyone banished to Siberia was forced to stay before redeployment, and he later speaks to some political exiles

"El público al sur de Rusia adora las melodías de su tierra, pero incluso aquel gentío de feriantes de diversas regiones quedó enseguida fascinado por la profunda naturalidad de la música. El amor a la naturaleza de su país y un nexo original con las fuentes directas de la melodía popular se reflejaron en la ejecución improvisada por el músico ciego. Llena de color, ágil y enérgica, la música se vertía en un raudal sonoro que se elevaba como un himno épico o se dilataba como un canto lírico y nostálgico. Unas veces parecía que una tormenta tronaba en los cielos rodando por los inmensos espacios; otras, que el viento estepario susurraba en la hierba de un túmulo para despertar vagas evocaciones del pasado."--Page 4 of cover
Vagabond life : the Caucasus journals of George Kennan by George Kennan( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Kennan (1845-1924) was a pioneering explorer, writer, and lecturer on Russia in the nineteenth century, the author of classic works such as Tent Life in Siberia and Siberia and the Exile System, and great-uncle of George Frost Kennan, the noted historian and diplomat of the Cold War. In 1870, Kennan became the first American to explore the highlands of Dagestan, a remote Muslim region of herders, silversmiths, carpet-weavers, and other craftsmen west of Chechnya, only a decade after Russia violently absorbed the region into its empire. He kept detailed journals of his adventures, which today form a small part of his voluminous archive in the Library of Congress. Frith Maier has combined the diaries with selected letters and Kennan's published articles on the Caucasus to create a vivid narrative of his six-month odyssey.The journals have been organized into three parts. The first covers Kennan's journey to the Caucasus, a significant feat in itself. The second chronicles his expedition across the main Caucasus Ridge with the Georgian nobleman Prince Jorjadze. In the final part, Kennan circles back through the lands of Chechnya to slip once again into the Dagestan highlands.Kennan's remarkable curiosity and perception come through in this lively and accessible narrative, as does his humor at the challenges of his travels."
