The publishing house «Political Encyclopedia» has published the work of V.A. Poghosyan, «Historians of the French Revolution.» It successfully combines the historiographical portraits of the author’s teachers with the publication of the archival documents discovered by him: letters to the outstanding Soviet scientist A.Z. Manfred from his Soviet colleagues, the German historian V. Markov and the French researcher J. Godechot. The book also presents some more interesting materials. All the publications are accompanied by the introductory texts and notes written by V.A. Poghosyan. It is hoped that this work will contribute to maintaining the best traditions of the Russian French studies among the modern generation of Russian historians.
