Abstract

Ruud traces the history of two fundamental social institutions which forged the physiognomy of the Russian cultural field: that of Russian press and censorship; they both had to play a fundamental role throughout Soviet society as well. Ruud’s study is a work that scholars can still use as a valuable instrument and students studying XIXth century Russian literature should know. But also a stimulating starting point from which new researches devoted to tsarist censorship should depart from.
