The Decembrist Pavel Pestel by P. O'Meara
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Pavel Pestel (1793-1826) was the key figure in the Decembrist's Southern Society and author of "Russian Justice", Russia's first republican manifesto. He was executed in St Petersburg for his leading role in the 1825 conspiracy against tsarist autocracy. This study of Pestel focuses on his highly original manifesto and analyses his ideological contribution to the Russian revolutionary movement and re-appraises his controversial role in the Decembrist secret societies.
