Summary
Among the few diaries available from inside early Soviet Russia, none approaches Iurii V. Got'e's in sustained length of coverage and depth of vivid detail. Got'e was a member of the Moscow intellectual elite, a complex and unusually observant man in his mid-forties, who was a professor at Moscow University and one of the most prominent historians of Russia at the time the Revolution broke out. Beginning his first entry with the words Finis Russiae, he describes his life in revolution-torn Moscow from July 8, 1917 through July 23, 1922--nearly the entire period of the Russia Revolution and Civil War up to the advent of the New Economic policy. His diary describes the hardships undergone by his family and friends, and the gradual takeover of the academic and professional sectors of Russia by the new regime. It aldo traces the changes in Got'e's own attitudes, as he struggled to preserve academic standards throughout these difficult years. At first he felt that Bolshevism meant complete doom for Russia; but eventually his ardent patriotism led him to accept the Bolsheviks' role in preserving the integrity of the Russian state. The diary was discovered in 1982 in the Hoover Institution Archives, in the papers of Frank Golder, to whom Got'e himself had entrusted it in 1922. It is translated literally and unabridged, with annotations by Terence Emmons. --
