We are troubled by Victoria Frede s rather flippant treatment of the lives, tribulations, and historic legacy of Nikolai Charushin, his long-time partner Anna Kuvshinskaia, and their populist revolutionary cohorts--a story which, in our telling, took us from 1851 and the time of the Great Reforms to the perestroika era.
