Project Summary

The short-lived almanac Vozdushnye Puti was a landmark Russian émigré publication. One finds on the pages of the almanac the writings of well-known Russian writers of the first emigration along side those of the second generation.The almanac’s singular importance lies in the fact that it was a principal conduit for the publication of tamizdat materials.
