Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is indeed a very important book; I should like to see The Icon and the Axe reach not only the two or three thousand specialists who comprise the natural audience for such a book, but also the much wider select circle of those who, say, both bought and actually read Doctor Zhivago." --The New York Times

"I cannot begin to touch on the riches of this book. It is packed with detail without being dry, vivd without being 'colorful,' and wide-randing without crying up special theories." --Elizabeth Janeway, Books Today

From the Inside Flap

"A rich and readable introduction to the whole sweep of Russian cultural and intellectual history from Kievan times to the post-Khruschev era." - Library Journal. Illustrations, references, index.
