Add your own review!

Overview

Russomania is the first comprehensive account of the breadth and depth of the British fascination with Russian and Soviet culture. It traces Russia's transformative effect on literary and intellectual life in Britain between 1881 and 1922, from the assassination of Alexander II to the formation of the Soviet Union. Unlike previous studies, this volume brings a host of less well known authors and translators into view, and provides an archive-rich study of institutions, disciplines, and networks.
