Contemporary Russian Philosophy explores a variety of perspectives in and on philosophy as it is currently being practiced in Russia. Co-sponsored by the Center for Professional and Applied Ethics at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, and by the Russian Philosophical Society, this special series features collaborative works between Russian and Western scholars, collections of essays by Russians, and monographs by Russians. All volumes are published in English.
The impressive series Mass Culture & Entertainment in Russia comprises collections of extremely rare, and often unique, materials that offer a stunning insight into the dynamics of cultural and daily life in imperial and Soviet Russia. The series is organized along six thematic lines that together cover the full spectrum of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russian culture, ranging from the penny press and high-brow art journals in pre-Revolutionary Russia, to children’s magazines and publications on constructivist design in the early Soviet Union.

The materials brought together in this series are essential to Slavists and historians, but should be equally appealing to political scientists, art historians, and sociologists who no longer view mass culture as the arrière-garde of cultural evolution, but as a highly complex phenomenon that deserves to be studied in its own right.

The entire series will be made available on Brill Online Primary Sources.

The sub-series ‘Russian Intelligence’ offers material which has never been published before. The first collection, comprising printed secret files, focuses on the final period of the Eastern Question, while the second, offering unique archival material, covers the entire earlier period.
The sub-series ‘Russian-Ottoman Relations’ covers the period 1600-1900 in four collections, each of which offers rare printed works in Western languages. One of these collections is devoted to the Crimean War (1854-1856), a particularly dramatic episode in the history of both Europe and the Middle East.
