Dr. Lev Nikolaevich Gumiliov (1912-1992), the greatest cultural geographer in Russian history. Despite his critics, L. N. Gumiliov opened a path of syncretic methodology that wed history to geography, humanities to science. He also moved the work of Vladimir Vernadskiy forward into the late 20th century, and created a bridge to Western ethnography in resonance with Bordieu, Leroi-Gourhan, and Levi-Strauss.
Our primary goal is to divulge the ideas of Dr. Lev Nikolaeivich Gumiliov (L.N.G.) - his passionary theory ethnogenes- to specialized readers of historical literature as well as to general readers. You have a chance to read four books and some material on L. N. Gumiliov:
