A. Pavlov. Martin Malia against Alexander Herzen and the Russian Socialism

Alexander Pavlov's article "Martin Malia against Alexander Herzen and the Russian Socialism" is dedicated to one of the most provocative biographies of the famous Russian political thinker and writer published under the title "Alexander Herzen and the Birth of Russian Socialism". The paper contains a wealth of information about the book, which appeared in 1965 but to this day has lost none of its original topicality, as well as about its author, the well-known Slavic scholar Martin Malia, a convinced liberal who devoted his life to debunking the ideas of socialism. One finds an extract from the book "Alexander Herzen and the Birth of Russian Socialism" dwelling on the basic elements of Herzen's political theory appended to the article.
