National Aspects of Russian Social Thought in the second half of the 19th century in Pre-revolutionary and Emigré Historiography (1880-1920)
Tomsk State University Bulletin. History. 2013. No. 6 (26)
The article presents a historiographical analysis of the studies examining the national problems of the Russian Empire as a subject in Russian social thought of the second half of the 19th century. It is noted that the majority of works were of journalistic character. The influence of public debate on the politicization and categorical judgments of many authors is demonstrated. The author comes to conclusion that pre-revolutionary historiography was not consistent in studying various groups of Russian social thought. Emigré historiography can be considered as an attempt to rethink the development of political thought of the 19th century.
