Ryfa (Russian language and literature, George Washington U.) bypasses the wrangling since the book appeared in 1893 about its genre by arguing that it simply created a new own. He says that Chekhov was familiar with travel literature, but when he set off for a penal colony at the other end of the Russian Empire in 1890, he had already determined to document and expose what he saw as a serious social evil in his country. The tapestry of mini-biographies of individuals and communities, Rufa finds, brought about significant changes in social policy, in sociological analysis, in literature, and in Chekhov. As in many of Edwin Mellen's books, the text is double spaced. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
