CHAPTER 1

Bernard Pares was the leading British expert on Russia during the period covered by this volume. Director of the University of London’s School of Slavonic Studies and editor of Slavonic and East European Review, he was a former British officer on the Russian front in World War I and liaison to Kolchak’s White government during the civil war. He examines the Russian character, with a breathless inventory of Russia’s resources, in Russia (New York, Mentor, 1943). Older attempts at the same task, still readable and stimulating, are Anatole Leroy-Beaulieu, The Empire of the Tsars and the Russians (New York and London, 1893) and Paul Miliukov, Outlines of Russian Culture (Philadelphia, 1948). Bertram Wolfe provides a lyrical description of the setting of modern Russian history in a chapter, “The Heritage,” from his classic, Three Who Made a Revolution (Boston, 1948). Wolfe was a Communist in the 1920s, a supporter of the right when Bukharin was prominent in the Bolshevik leadership. He later broke with Communism, writing widely and eloquently on related subjects. Aleksandr Blok’s “Scythians” is in Robert Goldwin (ed.), Readings in Russian Foreign Policy (Oxford, 1959). Polish counterpoint to the above is available through Henryk Paszkiewicz, The Origins of Russia (New York, 1954).

An essay stressing discontinuities between Kiev and Muscovy is Marshall Poe, The Russian Moment in World History (Princeton and Oxford, 2003). George Vernadsky’s Ancient Russia (New Haven, 1943) puts the emphasis on Eurasian
