P. G. RYNDZYUNSKY. Ideology of the Peasant Movement of 1770 - l850s and Methods of Its Study
The study of ideologies of peasant movements should not be limited to the mere generalisation of peasant conceptions of their goals, says the author. The anti. -serfdom movement led, in the last decade of the 18th century, to the broadening of the social basis of peasant liberators. Tsarist illusions inherent in the peasant movement were typical of democratic intelligentsia as well. But they should not be exaggerated as towards the mid-19th century notions contrary to the former belief in the tsar-liberator had become widespread among the peasants. More attention should be paid to the emergence of Utopian socialism in the peasant milieu...

V. N. VINOGRADOV. Liberal Bourgeoisie and Increasing Fascist Menace in the Last Years of the Wiemar Republic
The author raises the question of the liberal bourgeoisie's responsibility for the establishment of fascist dictatorship in Germany.

S. S. PASKOV. World History in the Context of Modern Japanese Methodology of History
The author discusses the approach of bourgeois historians to the study of world history and offers an analysis of theories and models current in the Japanese bourgeois historiography from the end of the 1940s to the 1970s. Bourgeois patterns of the world historical process, their differences notwithstanding, are spearheaded, subjectively and objectively, against Marxist conception of history. Though the broad use by bourgeois scholars of findings and methods of related scientific disciplines extends our knowledge of the past, the emphasis on their universalisatibn results in the emergence of one-sided reactionary patterns devoid of scientific content.
