About This Week’s Guest Mark Steinberg

Mark Steinberg is Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

He is the author of many books and articles on the Russian Revolution, urban history, religion, emotions, and utopias, including Proletarian Imagination: Self, Modernity, and the Sacred in Russia, 1910-1925 (Cornell 2002; Russian Edition 2022), Petersburg Fin-de-Siècle (Yale 2011), The Russian Revolution, 1905-1921 (Oxford 2017; Russian Edition 2018), the seventh through ninth (2018) editions of A History of Russia with Nicholas Riasanovsky (Oxford), and Russian Utopia: A Century of Revolutionary Possibilities, in the book series “Russian Shorts” (Bloomsbury 2021).

In 2003, for “Great Courses” by The Teaching Company, he recorded A History of Russia from Peter the Great to Gorbachev (a 36-lecture video/audio course with supplementary booklets).

He is currently working on the tenth edition of A History of Russia, which will appear in early 2024, and on Crooked and Straight in the City: Moral Storytelling on the Streets of New York, Bombay, and Odessa in the 1920s.

“Russia is not only Vladimir Putin”

Mark’s tips to become more culturally competent:

  1. Whatever you think you know about Russia is true, you’re wrong. Russia is not (only) Putin. Rember the diversity
  2. To really know Russia you need to know Russians. Spend some time not with the elite but with the individual people
  3. Read about the news and the country Russia.
