Ruud - Latest Book Success

Book CoverCongratulations to Professor Emeritus Charles A. Ruud for the publishing of his latest book "My Life for the Book: The Memoirs of a Russian Publisher, Ivan D. Sytin.

Professor Ruud along with former PhD Student Marina Soroka translated, edited and annotated the formerly unpublished memoirs of the most successful Russian pre-Revolutionary book publisher. "While the Revolution eventually deprived Sytin of all means to continuing publishing, his resilience and enterprise remain a lasting legacy. "

McGill Queen's University Press calls the book "a tale of Great Russian society voiced by a parvenu, depicts a pre-Revolutionary Russia of small shops, churches, convents, deep religious faith, and flawed rulers".
