Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which outlines the history of Eurasianism. Eurasianism as an intellectual and political trend emerged in 1921 when a group of Russian émigrés published the brochure, “Turn to the East.” The movement attracted attention among members of the Russian Diaspora and increased in size. The book shows how Eurasianism emerged and developed over the course of time. The book is divided into six chapters. These chapters address several important themes. Françoise Lesourd’s “Karsavin and the Eurasian Movement” and Ryszard Paradowski’s “Absolutism and Authority in Eurasian Ideology: Karsavin and Alekseev” address the problem of the relationship between Eurasianism and the Soviet regime. Both of these essays show that Eurasianism was sort of a “Freudian slip” of the regime: Eurasianists presented the regime as it actually was, not as it tried to present itself.

Keywords: Eurasianism; Freudian slip; post-Soviet studies; Russian Diaspora
