Revolutionary Dreams Utopian Vision and Experimental Life in the Russian Revolution



Revolutionary Dreams Utopian Vision and Experimental Life in the Russian Revolution by Richard (Professor of History, Georgetown University) Stites

Stite's book received the 1990 Vucinich Prize, awarded by the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies for the best book published in 1989 in the field of Russian and East European studies. The presentation is dynamic, fascinating, indeed brilliant, as well as fully expert...It is also a highly readable book...The book has already received much critical attention and great acclaim...In Revolutionary Dreams, we have a brilliantly presented historical work which is both pioneering and fundamental in its important field. - Nicholas V Riasanovsky (speech made on presentation of the Vucinich Prize)


'Richard Stites'
book is a lively, charismatic catalogue of the many manifestations of Russian

'pre-figurative behaviour' ... Stites profitably indulges the historian's love for accreted details and anecdotes, which add up to a cultural mosaic and suggest a scholarly proof.'
Spencer Golub, Brown University, Theatre Research International

`This intriguing book will be read with profit not only by historians of Russia but also by anyone interested in utopian visions and utopian experiments. ... a major contribution to Russian studies.
American Historical Review
