Book Review: The Invention of Mikhail Lomonosov

The Invention of Mikhail Lomonosov: A Russian National Myth by Steven A. Usitalo was reviewed in the Slavic and East European Journal, 58.2 (Summer 2014). Reviewer Marcus C. Levitt (University of Southern California) writes:

“The substance and merit of Usitalo’s study is his richly documented and copiously footnoted critical reconstruction of the myth of Lomonosov the scientist and its growth and reconfigurations over time, set within the broader context of the pan-European perception of scientific biography.”
