OVER THE DIVIDE by Victor A. Yakhontoff


Email this review


The response of a man to the times in which he lives is the basis of this biography, termed by the author ""an impersonal record of personal experience."" Raised in the privileged classes of Russia, he was soon receptive to outside ideas that stimulated his thinking and socialmindedness, and further study and travel in his Army and diplomatic career, produced an interrogatory attitude toward events in his own country which drove him, after trying to find his place in the new scheme of things in Russia, to America. Living through the decline of a monarchy, war and revolution, his record of his life makes thoughtful reading of the background of current events and rewarding in its intelligent evaluation of what he has seen and experienced.
