MEDIA REVIEWS

"Frede offers an intriguing, complex, often subtle, and always well-documented answer to the question, How did Russian intellectuals (unlike their European counterparts) come to ground their systemic worldviews on an assertive atheism?"--David McDonald, University of Wisconsin-Madison


"A splendid book. Frede draws upon published as well as archival sources, integrating these materials seamlessly into a narrative that is remarkable for its clarity and its sensitivity to nuance. The resulting book is therefore a rarity, being self-evidently learned and yet a great pleasure to read."--Gary Hamburg, Claremont McKenna College


"A significant contribution to a subject that has not been granted its due share of academic investigation."--"Slavonica "

"
The Russian soul, a concept much toyed with a century ago, has disappeared from informed commentary on Russian culture. Yet the 19th-century spiritual phenomenon known to us from the great Russian novels still seeks its definitive explanation. Russian thought contains the best potential answers but notoriously resists analysis. In Doubt, Atheism, and the Nineteenth-Century Russian Intelligentsa, Victoria Frede has heroically broken down some of the resistance. . . . [This] is an encouraging example of what the end of the Cold War has meant for Russian scholarship. Lesley Chamberlain, The Wall Street Journal"
Although primarily concerned with ideas regarding doubt and atheism, Frede explains how various personal, social, political, and foreign influences affected the thinkers mentioned. . . . Recommended. W. G. Moss, CHOICE"
A significant contribution to a subject that has not been granted its due share of academic investigation. Slavonica
