New Publication: Landmarks Revisited: The Vekhi Symposium 100 Years On

1 January 2017

From: 2 January 2014

The Vekhi (Landmarks) symposium (1909) is one of the most famous publications in Russian intellectual and political history.

Its fame rests on the critique it offers on the phenomenon of the Russian intelligentsia in the period of crisis that led to the 1917 Russian Revolution. It was published as a polemical response to the revolution of 1905, the failed outcome of which was deemed by all the Vekhi contributors to exemplify and illuminate fatal philosophical, political, and psychological flaws in the revolutionary intelligentsia that had sought it. Landmarks Revisited offers a new and comprehensive assessment of the symposium and its legacy from a variety of disciplinary perspectives by leading scholars in their fields. It will be of compelling interest to all students of Russian history, politics and culture and the impact of these on the wider world

Landmarks Revisited: The Vekhi Symposium 100 Years On eds. Robin Aizlewood and Ruth Coates.
