I guess after a while the kgbdiscovered that Fitzpatrick and Brius were the same person Country Email List But I think at the time they didn't know that. In the files, the person they were dealing with was Bruce (Brius), and there was nothing against anyone with that last name. You have just mentioned your stay at Oxford, where you received your doctorate Country Email List with your thesis on Lunacharsky. Meanwhile, in Cambridge was EH Carr, the prolific writer, diplomat, and Country Email List historian, whose studies of the USSR had become highly relevant. Did you have contact with Carry.
What impression did his work make on you? When I went to Oxford, Soviet history was Country Email List not considered a very legitimate object of study. Among other things, it was seen as too contemporary and it was assumed Country Email List that archival material could not be obtained. I saw it as a more or less virgin field in the 1960s. There were Country Email List hardly a few people studying these subjects, but I thought of them as essentially political scientists.
Who had drifted into the field of history. In short, there was no one whose Country Email List work on Soviet history I found to be of great interest at Oxford. The two people who had a job that was serious and interesting to me Country Email List were Leonard Schapiro at the London School of Economics and EH Carr at Cambridge. And I had a relationship Country Email List with both. Until the moment Leonard decided that he didn't like him ideologically, he was very supportive and a big sponsor. In Carr's case things turned out differently, and I have often wondered why I didn't go to Cambridge to study with him in the first place. It is one of the mysteries of life, but the truth is that I did not do it. In fact, I didn't contact Carr either, although I greatly admired his work.
