Mikhail Nikolayevich PokrovskyAugust 29 1868 - April 10, 1932) was a Bolshevik Russian historian. Pokrovsky graduated from Moscow University in 1891. A Bolshevik from 1905, Pokrovsky emphasized Marxist theory and the brutality of the upper classes in his Russian History from the Most Ancient Times (1910-13), downplaying the role of personality in favour of economics as the driving force of history. He wrote a Brief History of Russia, published in 1920 to much acclaim from Lenin, who said that he "like[d] the book immensely" in the preface to the first edition. Pokrovsky was head of the Institute of Red Professors from 1921-31. In 1929, he was elected to the Soviet Academy of Sciences.
