The Case of International Humanitarian Relief in Russia, 1921-1923 https://rajpub.com/index.php/jah/article/view/8105 <p>There is perhaps a pervasive view that empires are at odds with progressive politics, which are, in their own turn, without covert agendas. The case study of the devastating Russian famine of 1921-23 is an opportunity to examine these views in more detail, and to consider the ways in which imperial agendas, and notions of the projection of soft power, were intertwined with the humanitarian agendas of NGOs.</p> Maurice Suckling ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-02-28 2019-02-28 7 638 649 10.24297/jah.v7i0.8105
