A Russian paints America : the travels of Pavel P. Svinʹin, 1811-1813 by Pavel Petrovich Svinʹin( )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 1,340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pavel Petrovich Svin'in (1787/88-1839) was a painter, diplomat, and journalist who spent two years as part of the first Russian diplomatic mission to the United States. Soon after returning to Russia, Svin'in published a travel narrative of his experiences." "A Russian Paints America presents the first complete English translation of Svin'in's fascinating memoir. Thirty-one original watercolours complement his provocative views on topics such as slavery, religion, politics, and the fine arts. Introductory essays by Marina Swoboda and William Whisenhunt examine Russian-American relations, consider Svin'in's life and particular role in Russian history, and set his work in the context of the genre of picturesque travel - Svin'in clearly did not set out to produce a scholarly account of the United States but a work of literature, at a time when Russian literary language was in its earliest stages of development." "A Russian Paints America provides a compelling picture of the political and cultural environment in Russia and America in the early nineteenth century."--Jacket

"New Perspectives on Russian-American Relations includes seventeen articles on Russian-American relations from an international roster of leading historians. Covering topics such as trade, diplomacy, art, war, public opinion, race, culture and more, the essays show how the two nations related to one another across time from their first interactions as nations in the 18th century to now. Instead of being dominated by the narrative of the Cold War, New Perspectives on Russian-American Relations models the exciting new scholarship that covers more than the political and diplomatic worlds of the later twentieth century, and provides scholars with a wide array of the newest research in the field"--Provided by publisher

Marooned in Moscow : [the story of an American woman imprisoned in Soviet Russia] by Marguerite Harrison( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early part of February, 1920, I crossed into Russia through the Polish Front, as correspondent of the Baltimore Sun and the Associated Press, intending to remain for six weeks. I stayed for eighteen months, ten of which were spent in prison. This was due to the manner in which I entered the country, and my actions while there, which I shall describe fully in the following pages telling what happened to me as well as what I heard and saw in Russia. My treatment while in prison was no different from that accorded any other prisoners, native or foreign, and I can honestly say that I have come through it all with absolutely no personal bitterness and with what I believe to be a purely impartial view of conditions in the Soviet Republic. My account of my experiences is written entirely from memory, as I was permitted to take no notes out of the country when I was released on July 28, upon the acceptance by the Soviet government of the terms of the American Relief Association for famine relief in Russia, which was made conditional on the release of all American prisoners. - Foreword
