Wilson Center Project(s):
The Life and Thought of Vladimir Pecherin: A Niche in Russian Intellectual History.
Nov 01, 2004
Dec 01, 2004

Project Summary

Pecherin was one of the first Russian radicals who as early as 1836 planned to emigrate to the United States and organize a commune of similarly progressive thinkers. His idea of an American utopian project, however, stirred the imagination of such Russian writers as Herzen and Dostoevsky, who perceived in emigration to America a form of misguided social and political protest.
