Written around 1790, this is in a way an interesting read. Don't have high expectations on his literary style, though. And his political views are extremely vague. The one clear thing is he does not like serfdom. And who does nowadays? I recommend you read Pipes: Russia under the Old Regime. THAT is a marvelous book about old Russia. And Pipes (like me) is not very impressed by Radishchev. In fact Pipes points out that Pushkin wrote a parody of this book: Journey from Moscow to St Petersburg. According to Pipes Radishchevs ephemeral fame is based on Soviet propaganda. ( )
