Fellow Anton Fedyashin donates books to LMU's university library


Anton Fedyashin, a historian from the American University in Washington D.C., has spent one month researching, writing and debating at the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies in Munich. Before leaving back home to the US, he has donated several books on Russia's past and present to the university library of LMU Munich.

After staying at the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies in Munich for one month, Visiting Research Fellow Anton Fedyashin, Associate Professor at the American University in Washington, D.C., has returned home. His visit was full of fruitful work and intense academic discussions. Furthermore, the members of the Graduate School got deeper insights in Anton’s current research by his lecture in a colloquium where he talked about “Conservatism and Geopolitics”.

Before leaving, Anton dedicated several recent books on Russia, its history and foreign policy to the University Library of LMU Munich. Among them are Anton’s own work on “Liberals under Autocracy. Modernization and Civil Society in Russia, 1866-1904“,Angela E. Stent’s study about “The Limits of Partnership. U.S.-Russian Relations in the Twenty-First Century”, Andrei P. Tsygankov’s “Russia’s Foreign Policy. Change and Continuity in National Identity” and S.A. Smith’s “Russia in Revolution. An Empire in Crisis, 1890 to 1928”. The university library and the Graduate School thank Anton for this kind donation by which those books now are avaible in Munich for the first time.
