Crime and punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

10 editions published between 1968 and 2006 in English and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Raskolnikov commits murder. He then must deal both with the police, and his own guilty conscience. 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 290 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 271 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
A sentimental journey; memoirs, 1917-1922 by Viktor Shklovskiĭ( Book )

5 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 26 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

Developments in modern historiography( 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

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
The uncommon vision of Sergei Konenkov, 1874-1971 : a Russian sculptor and his times by Marie Turbow Lampard( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sergei Konenkov was one of the twentieth century's most distinguished Russian artists. A celebrated sculptor during the last decades of the Russian Empire, he rose to great prominence in the early Soviet period as well. Although he spent more than twenty years abroad in the United States, his influence never waned. After his return home in 1945, he became the dean of the Soviet art world while remaining a controversial figure to the end of his life. As mentor to several generations of Soviet sculptors, he was renowned for his personal charisma and artistic versatility. This collection of essays, interviews, and personal reminiscences is the first appraisal of his work and life published outside of Russia."--Jacket
