“Forecasts Early Bolshevik Collapse”

 

‘Forecasts Early Bolshevik Collapse’ – New York Evening Post 11-16-1923

 

Posted here (downloadable Word document above) is the following:

Forecasts Early Bolshevik Collapse

Ex-Professor of Sociology In Petrograd Predicts Democracy for Russia

New York Evening Post

November 16. 1923

This article seems to be unknown to Sorokin scholars — it is not listed in any bibliography or biographical work on Sorokin, as far as I know.

When the Post article appeared, Sorokin had been in the US for only about six weeks and was visiting, as a guest, Vassar College, where he attended classes, would soon give lectures on the Russian revolution to Vassar students, and worked on improving his English.

Sorokin, émigré in Berlin, his views on the Russian intelligentsia, 1922

 

‘Changing Russia; Lead of the Intellectuals’ – Times of India 12-20-1922

 

Posted here (above) as a downloadable PDF file:

“Changing Russia: Lead of the Intellectuals,” The Times of India, December 20, 1922, pg. 18

The scanned article which I have downloaded from Internet database has blank spaces; some of the text is not readable. But, the article is interesting from a biographical point of view, since it notes that Sorokin had arrived in Berlin and summarizes an article of his in the a Russian daily published in Berlin wherein Sorokin discusses view of the Russian intelligensia under Bolshevism.
