Publisher Comments:

Required reading for fans of Tom Stoppard's The Coast of Utopia-the landmark investigation into Russian history and thought

Few, if any, English-language critics have written as perceptively as Isaiah Berlin about Russian thought and culture. Russian Thinkers is his unique meditation on the impact that Russia's outstanding writers and philosophers had on its culture. In addition to Tolstoy's philosophy of history, which he addresses in his most famous essay, "The Hedgehog and the Fox," Berlin considers the social and political circumstances that produced such men as Herzen, Bakunin, Turgenev, Belinsky, and others of the Russian intelligentsia, who made up, as Berlin describes, "the largest single Russian contribution to social change in the world."

About the Author

Isaiah Berlin (1909-1997) was one of the twentieth century's most celebrated intellectuals and the author of many books, including Karl Marx, The Sense of Reality, and The Soviet Mind.

Henry Hardy, a fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford, is one of Isaiah Berlin's literary trustees.

Aileen Kelly is a fellow of King's College, Cambridge and the author of Toward Another Shore: Russian Thinkers Between Necessity and Chance and Views from the Other Shore: Essays on Herzen, Chekhov, and Bakhtin.
