Abstract

club meetings in the late nineteenth century, encouraged by the popular- ity of Ivan Turgenev and Lev Tolstoi, among many others. You get little sense in Bellows’s book that Americans were also gobbling up the cultural products of Russia in this era. How did the countries imagine each other’s emancipated population, and what impact did that have? These questions are surely a reflection of the thought-provoking book Bellows has written. It will undoubtedly be an excellent addition to the shelves of Americanists and Russianists alike and provides another much- needed monograph on the nineteenth-century relationship between the United States and Russia. Chelsea C. Gibson notes 1. Foglesong, The American Mission and the “Evil Empire”: The Crusade for a “Free Russia” since 1881 (New York: Cambridge University Press, 2007), 11. 2. Tocqueville, Democracy in America, ed. and trans. Harvey C. Mansfield and Delba Winthrop (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2000), 395, 396. chelsea c. gibson, visiting assistant professor in history at Binghamton University, is the author of the forthcoming article “‘The John Browns of St. Petersburg’: Former Abolitionists and Russian Terrorism in the Late Nineteenth Century” in the Massachusetts Historical Review. The Last Lincoln Republican: The Presidential Election of 1880.
