Inhaltsangabe: In this "lucid primer of Russian thought" (The Times Literary Supplement), Lesley Chamberlain finds that during the last two centuries Russian intellectuals have asked two fundamental questions, "what makes a good man?" and "what is the right way to live?" The nineteenth-century ideal of a happy man living in a just society became, in Russia, a quest to effect the wholesale transformation of society. Chamberlain shows how this moral passion, manifesting itself in philosophy and literature, existed in both pre- and post-revolutionary Russia. She reveals that 1917 did not represent the watershed we once thought, and shows how the dreams of a plain and simple life reached its negative apotheosis under Lenin. In Motherland, Lesley Chamberlain has produced a radical new interpretation of Russian intellectual history that, finally, gives a glimpse in to the soul of that singular country.
Über den Autor: Lesley Chamberlain studied German and Russsian in Exeter and Oxford, then worked as a journalist in Moscow before settling in London to write and teach. The topics of her numerous books range from food to philosophy. Chamberlain is a regular contributor to newpapers and journals in Britain and the United States, including The Times and The Times Literary Supplement (both of London). She has received wide acclaim for her biography of Nietzsche, Nietzsche in Turin.

Reissued, 1st thus. a clean copy, free of damage and without annotation. The author argues that in their attempt to answer the questions of what makes a good man, and what is the right way to live, Russian intellectuals have neglected the role of the individual, prioritise and instead the need to end injustice and autocracy. It was not until the eve of the revolution of 1917 that Russian philosophers came to grips with individualism, only for this endeavour to be fragmented and forced underground by the totalitarian century that followed.
