Synopsis

The Russian Diaspora:1917-1941 is a complete reference work to be used as an overview of the mass exodus from the Russian Empire after the revolutions and civil war (1917-1921). This book provides Russian Studies scholars, as well as students of world culture, with an accessible guide and overview of the emigres own lives, as well as of their contributions to the literature, music, arts, science and technology of their host countries. As such, the book is an essential addition to the history of world culture and technology. The layout of the book is extremely helpful. Each topic is introduced using a brief outline of the topic within its historical perspective. The outline is followed by an alphabetical listing of the outstanding contributors within the Russian Diaspora. The final section of the book provides a bibliography of the available Western-language and major Russian references.
