Review quote

'Richard Stites' book is a lively, charismatic catalogue of the many manifestations of Russian 'pre-figurative behaviour' ... Stites profitably indulges the historian's love for accreted details and anecdotes, which add up to a cultural mosaic and suggest a scholarly proof.'
Spencer Golub, Brown University, Theatre Research International `This intriguing book will be read with profit not only by historians of Russia but also by anyone interested in utopian visions and utopian experiments. ... a major contribution to Russian studies.'
American Historical Review
