Crime and punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

12 editions published between 1968 and 2006 in English and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammelled individual will, Raskolnikov, an impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the Tsars, commits an act of murder and theft and sets into motion a story which, for its excrutiating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its profundity of characterization and vision, is almost unequaled in the literatures of the world. The best known of Dostoevsky's masterpieces, Crime and Punishment can bear any amount of rereading without losing a drop of its power over our imagination

Images of space : St. Petersburg in the visual and verbal arts by G. Z Kaganov( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The highly original work is about the spatial imagination as it has manifested itself in one of the most beautiful and historically important cities in the world. The subject is not the buildings, trees, and rivers of St. Petersburg, but the spaces between them: space as a conceptual interval, not as emptiness. Emptiness and space are not synonyms, the author argues. One way or another, space is formed and shaped into a structure that can be perceived, but emptiness has no distinct articulation or content
The diaries of Nikolay Punin : 1904-1953 by N. N Punin( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Punin diaries contain vivid and dramatic scenes from the 1905 Revolution, World War I in Russia, the 1917 Revolutions, World War II and Stalinist oppression, imaginatively perceived by a talented man who lived to tell the tale. Together with the editors introductions on Punin and Russian Futurism and Punin and Akhmatova, the diaries broaden our understanding of the Modernist movement in art and culture and the central, though unjustly overlooked, place that Punin occupies within it."--Jacket
Journey to Armenia by Osip Mandelʹshtam( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last published work of a great poet who wrote a few lines attacking Stalin and was shortly thereafter exiled to Siberia where he died near Vladivostok six years later. An inimitable volume, Journey to Armenia is a travel book in name only. Osip Mandelstam visited Armenia in 1930, and during the eight months of his stay, he rediscovered his poetic voice and was inspired to write an experimental meditation on the country and its ancient culture. This edition also includes the companion piece, "Conversation About Dante," which Seamus Heaney called "Osip Mandelstam's astonishing fantasia on poetic creation." An incomparable apologia for poetic freedom and a challenge to the Bolshevik establishment, the essay was dictated by the poet to his wife, Nadezhda Mandelstam, in 1934 and 1935, during the last phase of his itinerant life. It has close ties to Journey to Armenia
A sentimental journey; memoirs, 1917-1922 by Viktor Shklovskiĭ( Book )

4 editions published between 1984 and 2004 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Viktor Shklovsky's A Sentimental Journey, which borrows its title from Laurence Sterne, describes the travels of a bewildered intellectual through Russia, Persia, the Ukraine, and the Caucasus during the period of the Russian Revolution. Valuable as a historical document for its first-hand account of the events during the period of 1917-1922, A Sentimental Journey is also an important experimental literary work - a memoir in the form of a novel." "At times lyrical, disturbing, ironic, and erudite, A Sentimental Journey is a singular book from one of the most recognizable and influential voices of twentieth- century Russian literature."--Jacket

Chekhov : and other essays by Lev Shestov( Book )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leon Shestov was a Russian-Jewish intellectual of the Silver Age of Russian culture who believed in the irrational, the divine, the overwhelming insight. As a philosopher, he stood firmly against the encroachment of rationalism and science. As a literary critic, he was unique in his quest for the experience behind artistic creation. In this book Shestov offers brilliant, witty insights into Chekhov, Dostoevski, Ibsen, Tolstoi, Hegel, Kant, Nietzsche, and many other writers and philosophers
Scenes from the bathhouse : and other stories of Communist Russia by Mikhail Zoshchenko( Book )

5 editions published between 1961 and 1971 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the famous Russian humorist and satirist, whose writings were originally banned from the Soviet press
Developments in modern historiography by Henry Kozicki( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collections of essays surveying the historical discipline at the end of the 1970s heralded the new approached being developed, approaches that promised a rich diversity and cosmopolitan pluralism in the face of the uncertainty of historical reality. The essayists in this successor volume, surveying the work of the 1980s, finds that these new approaches have not brought satisfactory results, and argues that traditional practices, reassessed and properly understood, constitute the true scientific grounding of the discipline. Objective reality is obtainable, the historian's subjectivity can be understood rationally, historical sources and causal strategies can be managed objectively. In brief, a truthful account of the past is possible, but it must be both objective and subjective

Western and Russian historiography : recent views( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection, the first of its kind, Western and Russian scholars reassess the fundamental suppositions of historiography from their respective orientations. Yet the argumentative engagements are fully as much within these centers as across them in an opposition of "bourgeois" and "Marxist". Western commentary criticizes Marxism but also addresses the fragmentation and uncertainty resulting from the overdevelopment of diversity and pluralism in its own recent past. Russian commentary, under glasnost and perestroika, criticizes Western thinking, but, even more so, seventy years of misguided Marxist thought. These two bodies of thought can be seen converging, potentially, upon a common set of understandings
Crime and punishment. Translated, with an afterword, by Sidney Monas by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

Russian intellectual antisemitism in the post-Communist era by Vadim Joseph Rossman( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antisemitism has had a long and complex history in Russian intellectual life and has revived in the post-Communist era. In their concept of the identity of the Jewish people, many academics and other thinkers in Russia continue to cast Jews in a negative or ambivalent role. An inherent rivalry exists between "Russia" and "the Jews" because Russians have often viewed themselves-whether through the lens of atheistic communism or that of the most conservative elements of the Orthodox Church-as a chosen people whose destiny is to lead the way to world salvation. In this book, Vadim Rossman presents the foundations and present influence of intellectual antisemitism in Russia. He examines the antisemitic roots of some major trends in Russian intellectual thought that emerged in earlier decades of the twentieth century and are still significant in the post-Communist era: neo-Eurasianism, Eurasian historiography, National Bolshevism, neo-Slavophilism, National Orthodoxy, and various forms of racism. Such extreme right-wing ideology continues to appeal to a certain segment of the Russian population and seems unlikely to disappear soon. Rossman confronts and challenges a range of disturbing, sometimes contradictory, but often quite sophisticated antisemitic ideas posed by Russian sociologists, historians, philosophers, theologians, political analysts, anthropologists, and literary critics
