"Remarkable for the objectivity and lack of embitterment with which Professor Miliukov handles the history of the Russian Church Russian art and Russian literature under the Soviet regime."—New York Herald-Tribune

"An outstanding work . . . a remarkable picture of the growth and various phases of Russian culture."—The Commonweal

"Beyond doubt will survive the whims of time. The reader is offered a rare opportunity to follow the evolution of Russia's institutions and ideas with the help of an extremely competent guide-an historian of prodigious erudition and broad-minded objectivity."—Survey Graphic

This first English translation of the only comprehensive and thorough history of Russian culture in any language is a publication of unique importance. Endowed with scholarly authority, it traces in broad outline the long rich story of the development of religion, literature, and the arts from their earliest manifestations to modern times. Originally published in 1941 in three sections, Religion and the Church, Literature, and Architecture, Painting and Music, it is here presented in one volume.

Paul Miliukov was an eminent scholar and statesman. He was Professor of History at the University of Moscow. After he emigrated to the United States, he taught in several other American universities and had a number of books and booklets published here.
