Evgeniy Frantsievich Shmurlo (1853-1934) was among the most outstanding and erudite Russian historians. A professor, a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, distinguished with honorary titles by prestigious world universities, he dedicated his efforts to an in-depth and multi-layered investigation of Russia's history. He consistently studied Russian and foreign archives in order to follow the political and cultural relations of Russia with the West. Taking part in prestigious scientific societies and communities in the country and abroad, he had repeatedly been awarded for his merits for the historical science. Biographers and analysts particularly stress on his striving and ability to discuss Russian history in its integrity, to outline the trends and regularities, as well as their natural and logic connection with the European historical process. History of Russia, 9th-20th Century is one of the most noteworthy compositions of Shmurlo, the fruit of four decades of persistent work and collection of ample documentary material. Published in Munich in 1922, and later translated into other languages, too, the book was highly assessed by the West European academia. In his historical work, written for the educated and inquisitive public outside the borders of Russia, E.F.Shmurlo offered an objective, science-based look at the political and spiritual development of one of the most powerful and influential states in the world.
