Praise
"With its joint consideration of literature and thought and its stress on Russian pluralist and liberal traditions, this is a significant and exciting volume. Kelly makes a major statement on Russian thought, and also on our own."
"In a collection covering such a long span of time there are bound to be inconsistencies here and there. However, everything Kelly produces is of interest, and her best essays are sheer delight. Packed with information, densely argued, clearly written, they remind us of that wonderful intoxication with ideas that is the hallmark of the Russian genius and that has marked Kelly herself to such good effect. She has performed a signal service by inviting Russia's thinkers back into the mainstream of political discourse."
"...by far the best study of its kind available today. It is full of information, speculative, wise, witty....'Toward Another Shore' is a masterpiece of its kind, so absorbing that one wants to read it all in one sitting despite its variety and its length; for it is a book that is wonderfully easy to read, and one with no axe to grind. At the same time it argues a case--its own kind of case--illuminatingly and with great subtlety and distinction."
