Pavel Krasheninnikov “leaves out, among others, Semeon Desnitsky, PhD from Glasgow, who was the first academic to teach law in the Russian language and contributed to Catherine the Great’s reforms in the eighteenth century; the great judge and reformer Anatoly Koni who presided over the jury acquittal of Vera Zasulich in 1878; and Tamara Georgievna Morshchakova, reforming Constitutional Court judge, who is still with us.” Bill Bowring, The SCRSS Digest
“In this book, Krasheninnikov compiles brief biographical sketches of twelve men who were engaged in attempts during the eighteenth to twenty-first centuries ‘to establish the rule of law in Russia'”. Michael Newcity, The Russian Review
