(Without a Heading) a weekly political magazine published in St. Petersburg from January to May 1906. Sixteen issues were published.
Bez zaglaviia was the organ of a group of bourgeois-liberal intellectuals who were at first adherents of legal Marxism and economism and later of the Union of Liberation. The editorial staff included S. N. Prokopovich (editor), E. D. Kuskova (publisher), V. la. Bogucharskii, V. V. Khizhniakov, and others. They proclaimed themselves ideological adherents of Western European “critical socialism” and supported the policies of the Cadets. Lenin called the Bez zaglaviia group “Menshevik-minded Cadets,” or “Cadet-minded Mensheviks,” and criticized them as followers of Bernstein and the renegades (see Poln. sobr. soch., 5th ed., vol. 12, p. 323; vol. 13, p. 47; vol. 15, pp. 185–86, 376–78; vol. 41, p. 385). After the calling of the First State Duma, Bez zaglaviia ceased publication, and the group which had published it took part in the leftist Cadet newspaper, Tovarishch.
