Zhivago’s Secret Journey

Paolo Mancosu continues an investigation he began in his 2013 book Inside the Zhivago Storm, which the New York Review of Books described as "a tour de force of literary detection worthy of a scholarly Sherlock Holmes." In this book, Mancosu extends his detective work by reconstructing the network of contacts that helped Pasternak smuggle the typescripts of Doctor Zhivago outside the Soviet Union and following the vicissitudes of the typescripts when they arrived in the West. Drawing from a rich trove of archival documents, Mancosu details events that were treated as top secret by all those involved, vividly recounting the history of the publication of Pasternak’s epic work with all its human and political ramifications.

Roots of the Issei

Andrew Way Leong examines the emergence of the generational terms issei, nisei, and sansei, which have long been used to organize early twentieth-century Japanese American narratives. Using digitized Japanese American newspapers, Roots of the Issei suggests these widely-used generational concepts are in fact a recent construct and provides a complex and nuanced picture of the Japanese American community.
