  • Anything Goes: Post-1991 Historiography about Ivan in Russia
    • Authors: Charles J. Halperin
      First page: 3
      Abstract: Source: Volume 10, Issue 1, pp 3 - 27The dissolution of the Soviet Union unleashed a flood of publications about Ivan the Terrible in Russia. Instead of creating a new consensus about Ivan’s personality and rule, these books and articles manifested a greater polarization of opinion than has ever existed in Russian historiography on this controversial subject. The spectrum of opinion may be structured under five rubrics – apologetic, positive, conflicted, critical, and hostile – but Ivan’s paradoxical rule confounds even this heuristic paradigm.

  • John Stuart Mill and His in Imperial Russia
    • Authors: Julia Berest
      First page: 28
      Abstract: Source: Volume 10, Issue 1, pp 28 - 70Among Western European thinkers whose works were translated into Russian in the 19th century, John Stuart Mill (1806–1873) was one of the most influential and controversial figures. As an economist with socialist sympathies and an advocate of women’s rights, Mill enjoyed special popularity among the left intelligentsia in Russia. Ironically, Mill’s reputation proved higher and more long-lasting in Russia than in Mill’s home country. This essay examines the Russian reception of Mill’s Autobiography, the last of his works to be translated into Russian. It illustrates significant differences in the Russian and British treatments of Mill’s legacy.
