Dr Robert Henderson's new book : Vladimir Burtsev and the Struggle for a Free Russia

Friday July 14th

Dr Robert Henderson has written a new book, Vladimir Burtsev and the Struggle for a Free Russia. Dr Henderson analyses Burtsev’s struggle against the Tsarist regime in the latter half of the 19th century, and traces his opposition to Bolshevism following the revolution in 1917. Burtsev’s life is set in the context of Russian and European history, and Dr Henderson uses Burtsev as a means to explore topics such as European police collaboration, prison systems, diplomatic relations, and Russia’s relationship with Europe. Extensive original archival research and previously untranslated Russian source material is incorporated throughout the text.
