A World of Em­pires

The Rus­sian Voy­age of the Fri­gate Pal­lada

The New York Review of Books - - Contents - Edyta M. Bo­janowska

“Bo­janowska opens an in­trigu­ing win­dow on to this ear­lier age of glob­al­iza­tion.” —Jef­frey Wasser­strom, Fi­nan­cial Times “A gem: in­tel­li­gent, finely writ­ten, and orig­i­nal. Bo­janowska an­a­lyzes the 1852 Pal­lada ex­pe­di­tion through...the fa­mous and enig­matic Rus­sian nov­el­ist Ivan Gon­charov.”
