A new book by the famous philologist and historian, professor of the University of Cambridge, Alexander Etkind, tells how the Russian Empire took possession of foreign territories and developed its own lands, colonizing many peoples, including the Russians themselves. Etkind elaborates on the limits of the application of the Western notions of colonialism and orientalism to Russian culture, the formation of the language of self-colonization among Russian historians, the serfdom and the peasant community as colonial institutions, and attempts at literature to solve in their own way the problems of internal colonization posed by Russian history. Moving from history to literature and back, Etkind gives unexpected interpretations of critical texts about the imperial experience, whose authors were Defoe and Tolstoy, Gogol and Conrad, Kant and Bakhtin
