Newest Edition of The Russian Review

Yes, I know, everyone has been anxiously awaiting volume 74, no. 1 (January 2015) of The Russian Review.  This scholarly journal has been around a long time now, and this issue has a set of four articles on the theme of "Foreign-Language Use in Russia during the Long Eighteenth Century." I found nothing of interest there, except for the fact that most of the articles have more space devoted to footnotes than to narrative text.  The other three articles in the issue are not much better.  I'll check out the book reviews in a later post.
