An Interview with Charlotte Alston on Tolstoy's Disciples

Randall Stephens

This marks the first in a series of interviews with History and American Studies academic staff.  Here you’ll have a chance to find out more about the exciting research being conducted by those in our programmes, as well as learn about conferences and other events and initiatives planned for the near future.

In the segment below I speak with Charlotte Alston, Senior Lecturer in History at Northumbria University, about her most recent book, Tolstoy and His Disciples: the History of a Radical International Movement (I.B. Tauris, 2013).  She is also the author of two other books; Piip, Meierovics and Voldemaras: The Baltic States, Makers of the Modern World, the Peace Conferences 1919-23 and their Aftermath (Haus Publishing, 2010); and Russia’s Greatest Enemy? Harold Williams and the Russian Revolutions (I.B. Tauris, 2007). Charlotte has published journal articles and book chapters on Russia’s relations (both cultural and diplomatic) with the West, the history of the Russian revolution and the Russian civil war, the post-First World War peace settlements, and the international influence of Tolstoy’s thought.
