Scholar and His Time: Yakov Mikhailovich Zakher
Read
Annotation
The article analyzes life and career of an eminent Soviet scholar of the October Revolution generation, prisoner of GULAG and historian of the  French Revolution. It investigates how political campaigns and persecutions affected Zakher’s life and career, and demonstrates the  difficulties that ideological control created for researches in the Soviet Union. The paper focuses on the collision between scholar’s academic achievements, his reputation in local and international research communities, and the treatment he received from Soviet academic bureaucratic “establishment” (university and publishing officials, etc.). The paper utilizes many documents from Zakher’s personal archive, and the author’s personal archive.
