History and historians-this is the main plot of the book by the Africanist and Orientalist, professor, Doctor of Historical Sciences A.M. Khazanov "I learned the craft of a historian from them "(Moscow, 2014, 132 p.). The fascinating story, which is hard to break away from, immerses you in the atmosphere of the 1950s, reminds you of the difficult years of perestroika in our country, introduces you to such prominent historians of science as A.

V. Gankovsky (1921-2001), who spent his best years in the GULAG behind barbed wire. However, the heavy fate that fell on his life "did not break Yuri Vladimirovich and did not put on him the seal of bitterness and hatred for people." After being released from prison in 1956, he soon defended his PhD thesis and became the academic secretary of the Institute.
