Abstract: The reviewed book contains the first publication of the full stenograph of the Soviet ethnographers conference of 1929 based on the text kept in the archives of the Peter the Great Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography RAS. This conference was the most important stage in the development of “Soviet ethnography”. The highly professional publication of the stenograph includes a full-fledged preface, commentary, index of topics and authors, and will undoubtedly become a valuable historiographical source for studying the history of Russian humanities.
Keywords: Soviet ethnography, conference of ethnographers, Soviet Marxism, history of science.
