The Decembrist Pavel Pestel : Russia's first republican.

O'Meara, P. (2004) 'The Decembrist Pavel Pestel : Russia's first republican.', Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan.


Russia's First Republican is designed to fill a gap in the historiography of the Decembrist movement. The research done in archives and libraries in Russia, the US, and the UK has led to the production of a comprehensive study of Pestel, the political activist and ideologue. It comprises a reconstruction of his formative years, an analysis of his role in the Decembrist secret societies from 1816 to 1825, and an assessment of his ideological contribution to the early nineteenth-century Russian revolutionary movement. Particular attention is paid to his highly original project for a Russian republic, Russian Justice.
