Primarily an attack on serfdom and an appeal to the serfs voluntarily, Aleksandr Radishchv's JOURNEY FROM ST. PERERSBURG TO MOSCOW has often been described as a Russian UNCLE TOM'S CABIN. Published in 1790, the book was banned immediately and the author first sentenced to death, then banished to eastern Siberia. On the order of the Empress Catherine II, who read the JOURNEY very carefully, all copies that could be found were collected and burned. The few that escaped were widely circulated and laboriously copied out by hand, but the book was not freely published in Russia until 1905

Africa and the discovery of America by Leo Wiener( Book )

21 editions published between 1920 and 2011 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Professor’s Wiener’s work was a pioneering effort that opened the reader’s eyes to new information not previously considered. This field of study would later popularized by Professor Ivan Van Sertima in his book, They came before Columbus: The African in Ancient America. The scholars of African descent who did able to work in the field before Professor Van Sertima—Legrand Clegg, Ronald Davis, Carter G. Woodson and J.A. Rogers—they are outstanding. It further reveals that in all this adventuring and wandering, the African never launched a destructive war on the people that they met; it created an amalgam of two people that created a separate culture with its own distinctiveness... If Christopher Columbus did not discover America, exactly what did he do of great significance? He opened up the western hemisphere, North and South America and the Caribbean islands for European exploitation and eventual domination... This book is about an event in history that changed the world for all times. It is a sad story that did not have to be. What Africans and the indigenous Americans have given to the world is a part of total humanity that must be respectfully considered in order to build a world where all people can walk in peace and dignity with their respective contributions accepted"--Amazon.com

Classic tales and fables for children by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

Product Description: Renowned Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) had an abiding interest in children and children's literature. He started a school for peasant children on his family's estate, and later founded another, experimental school with the motto, "Come when you like, leave when you like." Fascinated by the simple charm and fresh innocence with which the children of his schools told stories, Tolstoy began writing about his own childhood, emulating the uncomplicated narrative style and disarming directness of the tales told by the children of his acquaintance. After completing WAR AND PEACE, he incorporated these stories in a series of easy readers. Known as THE ABC BOOK (Azbuka) and THE NEW ABC BOOK (Novaia Azbuka), these marvelous readers were widely adopted in Russia and were still in use in the Soviet era. The tales and fables in this charmingly illustrated volume come mainly from these two well-loved primers. Part 1 consists of stories about Tolstoy's own childhood, all told with beautiful simplicity. Part 2 contains Tolstoy's free adaptations of fables from Aesop and from Hindu tradition. Part 3 is devoted solely to his longest and most famous children's work, the fairy tale "Ivan the Fool and His Two Brothers." Never patronizing and often humorous, these small gems reveal Tolstoy's deep appreciation for and understanding of children's artistic and moral sensibilities
