It was my intention to use my stay at NIAS to complete my dissertation on Lev Tolstoy’s views about history and historiography. This in fact I did: I wrote the chapters 4 and 5 and the epilogue, completely rewrote chapter 1 and the introduction, revised chapters 2 and 3 and compiled a bibliography. The promotion took place on 29 June 1995, a commercial edition of the book is published by Meulenhoff and chances are that the book will appear in an English and a German translation as well.
