Riassunto: Lesley Chamberlain, novelist, traveller and historian of ideas, has been pondering the enigma of Russia for over thirty years. She finds that during the last two centuries Russian intellectuals have asked two fundamental questions: 'what makes a good man?' and 'what is the right way to live?' Motherland is a unique introduction to the key Russian thinkers and an eloquently-narrated journey in the history of ideas. By examining Russian thought over the past two centuries, Lesley Chamberlain has produced a radical new interpretation of Russian intellectual history that, finally, gives us a glimpse in to the soul of that singular country.
Review: "'Motherland is a valiant, fascinating and intellectually rigorous attempt to make sense of an extremely difficult subject.' T. J. Binyon, Sunday Telegraph 'Splendid... the pages that Chamberlain devotes to Lenin's dismal monograph are among the sharpest and most keenly felt in the book.' Jonathan Derbyshire, Daily Telegraph; 'Informative and stimulating... Chamberlain can be both enlightening and original... Motherland is well worth reading.' Oliver Ready, Moscow Times; 'Ambitious, challenging and persuasive... Chamberlain excavates whole generations of thinkers in a compelling manner... Meticulously researched and clearly argued.' Scotland on Sunday"

Reissued, 1st thus. a clean copy, free of damage and without annotation. The author argues that in their attempt to answer the questions of what makes a good man, and what is the right way to live, Russian intellectuals have neglected the role of the individual, prioritise and instead the need to end injustice and autocracy. It was not until the eve of the revolution of 1917 that Russian philosophers came to grips with individualism, only for this endeavour to be fragmented and forced underground by the totalitarian century that followed.
