Sergei Antonov, Assistant Professor of History at Yale University and Harriman Postdoctoral Fellow 2012-13, contributed an op-ed to the Washington Post on "The Russian Civil War Began 100 Years Ago Today. Russians Are Still Fighting It" (November 7, 2017). The piece concludes with the lines: A hundred years on, the conflict between Bolshevik “red” and traditional “white” forces unleashed in 1917 still rages in the Kremlin as Putin’s government tries to adapt and assimilate both parts of Russia’s heritage into a coherent path into the future.
Antonov is the author of Bankrupts and Usurers of Imperial Russia: Debt, Property, and the Law in the Age of Dostoevsky and Tolstoy (Harvard University Press, 2016).
