Review copy. As new in original dust-wrapper. Clean, bright and tight. Unused. D.w. a little grubby at back from storage. Used; Like New This examines the ways that writers and their works unnerved and irritated Russia’s authoritarian rulers both before and after the Revolution.

She offers a compelling analysis of the power of Russian literature to shape national identity despite sustained efforts to silence authors deemed subversive
