Pechat’ I Revoliutsiia


(The Press and Revolution), a Soviet monthly journal of criticism and book reviews published in Moscow from 1921 to 1930. Until 1929 the editorial board included A. V. Lunacharskii, N. A. Meshcheriakov, I. I. Skvortsov-Stepanov, and M. N. Pokrovskii; the editor in chief was V. P. Polonskii.

The journal’s wide variety of topics included the theory and history of literature and publishing, literary criticism, and essays on literature. It also published articles on the history of books and drawings, as well as book reviews on such subjects as art, politics, philosophy, military affairs, and natural science. In some years as many as 3,000 book reviews appeared. After changes on the editorial board in 1929, the journal lost its wide-ranging character.
