A political-economic analysis], Alma-Ata: Nauka. Kochevye obshchestva [Nomadic Societies] Vladivostok: Dalnauka. If Ralph Miliband devoted his life to “the god that failed” — Marxism — Ernest Gellner devoted much of his to the god that didn’t — Islam. Ernest Gellner (1925–1995) was a major 20th-century social theorist. ), The Study of the State (pp. Paris: Andrien Maisonneuve. Not a Marxist himself, Gellner nevertheless sympathetically cites Shnirelman's conclusions that nomadic pastoralism, though being one of the forms of productive economy, ‘does not allow society to rise above the level of pre-class or, in rare cases, early class relations’ (Shnirelman in Bromley 1986: 244) and even he finds similar thoughts in the works of Childe. Only in 1934 did the question of nomadic feudalism emerge in Soviet anthropology. Kochevaia civilizatsiia kazakhov [The Nomadic Civilization of the Kazakhs]. Gellner, E. 1990. Also the polemic of Markov with Zlatkin, Lashuk and Fedorov-Davydov has escaped Gellner's attention. In this discussion, all the above viewpoints have figured to some extent or another. The fact that this idea was presented in a official academic volume edited by Academician Bromley and issued by the central scientific publishing house (with a large number of copies printed) serves, in the opinion of the British anthropologist, as an index of change in Soviet nomadology. Gellner notes a predominance in Tolstov's works of canon citations from the works of the classics of Marxism over particular historical data. 1993. The subject of discussion has been concentrated on the question of what is the base for nomadism's specificity, (1) the internal nature of the stock-breeding being the base of the so-called nomadic mode of production or, (2) the peculiarities of the external modes of adaptation of nomads to the agricultural world-empires. Ernest Gellner was in the great tradition of European thinkers. At least for Marxists, it is all or nothing, unilinearism or chaos, predestination or the abyss. New York: American Geographical Society. Without additional comments however many fine points would be incomprehensible to Anglophone scholars. At first sight, Karl Marx and Ludwig Wittgenstein may well seem to be as different from each other as it is possible for the ideas of two major intellectuals to be. Kochevaia alternativa sotsialnoy evoliutsii [Nomadic alternative of social evolution]. Ernest Gellner's well-known model aspires to a general interpretation of all Muslim societies, past and present. Ernest Gellner was an outstanding theorist of modernity and a rare breed among late twentieth century scholars. The problem arises from the impossibility of interpreting the superficially motionless and cyclically evolving nomads within the framework of progressivist (and I would add, Eurocentrist) theories of the human history which also include Marxism. Pozdnepervobytnaia obshchina zemledeltsev-skotovodov i vysshikh okhotnikov, rybolovov i sobirateley [Late primitive community of the agrarians and pastoralists and of the most developed hunters, fishermen and foragers]. Unpublished Ph.D. thesis. Gellner's book and the work of Valeriy Tishkov, the main constructivist in Russia, have helped greatly to dethrone Bromley's primordialist-Marxist theory of ethnos. In Rastiannikov V. G. An Introduction to the History of the Turkic Peoples: Ethnogenesis and State Formation in Mediaeval and Early Modern Eurasia and the Middle East. The book On the Question of the Turkish-Mongolian Feudalism by professor Nikolay Kozmin, who was killed by firing squad in Irkutsk in 1939, remained unknown to Gellner (Kozmin 1934). Vostok/Oriens, 6: 110–123. Ancient, mediaeval and even more recent nomads have had a similar herd composition strictly determined by the ecological conditions of habitat, primitive and easily transportable tin ware and analogous household technology. Gellner makes a slightly optimistic conclusion with respect to the future of Soviet anthropology: ‘The continuing steady stream of “feudal” interpretations... seems to be swinging in favour of the rival view’ (Gellner 1988: 113).

The basis of Gellner's negative opinion was the result of the pressing attempts of Tolstov to justify the relationship of the Marxist theory of class struggle with a necessity to apply it in action. Kradin, N. N., Korotayev, A. V., Bondarenko, D. M., de Munck, V., and Wason, P. K. Tolstov is well-known as a violent introducer of Stalin's straightforward theses. Epokha pervobytnoi rodovoy obshchiny (pp. However, it should be said in defense of Tolybekov that he has not remained a pure ‘unilinealist’. Skalník, P. 1990. Ernest Gellner (1925–1995) ... civil society groupings, destroyed by Tsarism as much as by Marxism, with whom he could cooperate, sure of their ability to control their own forces. Vladivostok: Dalnauka. 27/09/2010. Subsequently, Peter Golden (1992, 2001), using data on sedentary mediaeval nomads of the East European steppe, developed the ideas of the mediacy of the steppe politogenesis with the agrarian world. True, Gellner is here somewhat inconsistent. The references to works of Marx, Engels and Lenin disappeared. ), Istoriia pervobytnogo obshchestva. Finally, how should nomadism be interpreted within the framework of one of the basic methodological principles of the historical materialism – the law of correspondence between base and superstructure? From the 1920s to the early 1930s, there existed a pluralism of approaches to the stage classification of nomadism: some researchers spoke in favour of the primitive-tribal nature of nomadic societies while others dwelled on their state-like characteristics. Initially a Russian variant of this text was published in the mid-1990s (Kradin 1996). 1948 [1934]. In this regard, Tolybekov can be considered as one of those researchers in the USSR who attempted to restore within Soviet Marxism the multilineal interpretations of the historical process. Gellner, E. 1974. That is the reason why – as Gellner believes – in order to introduce nomads into the course of the historical process, Tolybekov defended the progressiveness of inclusion of the Kazakhs into Tsarist Russia (Gellner 1988: 114). Nomads have not fitted into the dialectics of world history. Gellner overlooks that the fundamental work on primitive societies cited by him did not reflect views of the majority of researchers. He was born in Paris to Czech parents Rudolf and Anna. However, there were also revisionists within the camp of the orthodox monists who made their analyses of nomadic feudalism. He demonstrates the tentativeness and contradictory character of Potapov's constructions. He made major contributions in very diverse fields, notably philosophy and social anthropology. Ernest Gellner was born in Paris and brought up in Prague. Tolybekov attempts to lay a parallel track alongside the main one of world history. Ernest Gellner was a social anthropologist and philosopher. 4 He believes that nations and nationalism are not somehow revealed by historical events, but rather that they are fabricated concepts. Wiesbaden: Otto Harrassowitz. At the same time, the points-of-view appeared which insisted on a non-feudal nature of nomadic societies: concepts about pre-feudal and early-class nature of nomadic societies, and a perspective about the existence of the Asiatic Mode of Production (AMP) among the nomads and also a specific nomadic form of evolution (for details on the discussion see Kogan 1980; Halil 1983; Khazanov 1975, 1984; Markov 1976; Kradin 1992; Masanov 1995). Poised between social systems, he was compelled to analyse the chasms that he straddled. Voprosy istorii, 8: 39–48. Alas, there were objective reasons for this. The anthropologist Ernest Gellner writes that the Marxist world of Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union and that of Islam are mirror-images of one another in two key respects. Globalism Is A Cultural Marxist Ideology Globalism is not the same as globalization. Gellner explained nationalism as a response to modern circumstances. 1990. The specificity of nomadic society cannot be correctly understood without an appeal to the cultural ecology and relations of nomadic pastoralists with their sedentary agrarian neighbours. 1996.

He provides a strong political-economic background to his viewpoint trying to prove that land is only a subject of labour whereas means of production is the animals pastured by them. Journal of Asian Studies XLI (1): 45–61. 1976. In W. Berelowitch (ed. The volume has been prepared by one of the most striking research teams of the 1970–1980s, working in the department of history of primitive society (headed by Avram Pershits) of the then Institute of Ethnography of the USSR Academy of Sciences. Kradin 2002). Oxford: Basil Blackwell. As to the theoretical aspect, Gellner notes that nomadism is for Marxism the same fundamental problem as is the AMP. These disagreements led to several heated discussions. Simultaneously, under the conditions of overcoming of the formational monism, attempts have been undertaken to consider nomadism from the perspective of an evolutionary civilisation approach, which would substantiate the existence of a specific nomadic civilisation in history (cf. KARL MARX’ ERNEST GELLNER THE antithesis of society was once anarchy: and then the central problem of political theory was that of social order, the legitimation of authority as such, and of the compatibility of freedom and order. 156–173). Journal of World-System Research VIII (3): 368–388. During the ten post-Soviet years, this discussion has largely continued in the literature in the Russian language. Moscow: Vostochnaia literatura. ), Empires. The economic basis of nomadism – pastoral cattle-breeding – has remained actually unchanged over the course of many centuries. 1981. Neither nomads nor the East (the Orient) fit into the common evolution of humanity from the primitive stage to Communism. Gellner touches on two aspects of the problem considered in the chapter: a theoretical one concerning the heuristic possibilities of the Marxist method and a properly historiographical one providing assessment of either authors or of their works. From this viewpoint even early ideas of Khazanov advanced in his book on the evolution of the Scythian society (1975) looked quite revisionist. ), Regards sur l'anthropologie soviétique. Marxism and Nationalism Ephrain Nimni, MARXISM AND NATIONALISM: Theoretical Origins of a Political Crisis. I think that if Ernest Gellner would have acquainted himself with the works of a wider circle of nomadologists he would not have been so optimistic. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. 1998. Issledovanie khoziaistva i obshchestvennykh otnosheniy kochevnikov Azii (vkliuchaia Iuzhnuiu Sibir') v sovetskoy literature 50–80ykh let [The Study of economic and social relations among the nomads of Asia (including southern Siberia) in Soviet anthropology of the 1950-1980s]. Since the mid-1930s, with Stalin's dictatorship firmly established when mass repression and genocide against the Soviet people was underway, the theory of nomadic feudalism became the prevailing perspective in historical literature. A special double issue of Cahiers du Monde Russe et Soviétique 31 (2–3): 141–50. In perhaps his last word on this theme, he wrote that he ‘always knew that those beliefs were rubbish’ but treated them with respect ‘as one generally does with regard to the religion of others’ (Gellner 1993: 141). 1967. Gellner rightly assigns the credit of the founders of the theory of nomadic feudalism to Boris Vladimirtsov (1934) and Sergey Tolstov (1934). Moscow: Vostochnaia literatura. Unfortunately, Gellner apparently was not familiar with this hypothesis. The attempt by Fedorov-Davydov (1976) to show that there is little in common between Vladimirtsov's understanding of feudal property and that of most Soviet specialists on feudalism has not met with success.

For about 10 years, I have taught different courses at universities and could see that it was not necessary to cite Marx in order to be a Marxist. However, this is not the reason for his antipathy. A tradition of referring to the specifics of nomadic societies on the basis of only, or largely, internal development survives in the Russian research on nomadism until today (Kalinovskaia 1996; Kychanov 1997; Markov 1998). However, attempts to substantiate a specific mode of developing the societies of pastoral nomads have attracted the greatest attention. Gellner does justice to Soviet nomadology. It is believed that in this way Soviet anthropologists ignored any criticism. 236–426). 1992 [1989]. Gellner has turned his attention to the problem of nomadic feudalism twice: first in the foreword to the book, Nomads and the Outside World, by Anatoly Khazanov and then, more fully in this collection of essays with the title, State and Society in Soviet Thought, where he devoted a special chapter to the discussion of the social-economic relations among the nomads (Gellner 1984: ix-xxv, 1988: 92–114). ), IV Dalnevostochnaya konferentsiia molodykh istorikov (pp. Kharisma i vlast' v epokhu Chinggis-khana [Charisma and Power During the Epoch of Chinggis Khan]. Later, in the course of discussion concerning the importance of Gellner for development of anthropology, an idea was formulated to prepare the paper for a wider group of researchers. (eds. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. But globalism is a cultural Marxist ideology aimed at the racial diversification of white nations. However, as is often the case when many people take part in a project, some did not write their parts and the work was not done. In many respects, one can agree with the conclusions of Gellner. In W. Berelowitch (ed. Despite this standard conception, however, a small number of scholars have long suggested that there are deeper philosophical commonalities between Marx and Wittgenstein. Barfield, rejecting the diffusive interpretations of borrowing of the state by nomads from farmers, has shown that the degree of the centralisation of the steppe society was directly related to the level of political integration of the sedentary agrarian society. E. rnest Gellner was born in Prague and came to England in 1939, where he attended school in St Albans before winning a scholarship to Ballio!’ He fought in the Czech brigade in France in 1944-45, and, in a rare biographical note, describes himself sloping off to the bookshops there and happening upon the writings of Camus and Sartre. However no review of this book has ever appeared in Soviet anthropological journals. On the one hand there is the reality and practice of Bolshevism (Soviet Marxism or Marxism-Leninism) which Gellner viewed rather critically; on the other there is Marxism without adjectives as a general social and historical theory. E. Gellner o kochevom feodalisme [E. Gellner on nomadic feudalism]. (ed. Gellner discussed nationalism in a number of works, starting with Thought and Change (1964), and he most notably developed it in Nations and Nationalism (1983). 16–133). After studying at Oxford, he was appointed lecturer in philosophy at the University of Edinburgh and then to a position at the London School of Economics. Карта сайта In Bromley, I. V. Архив публикаций, 400079 г. Волгоград, ул. For a long time Khazanov's name has been influential in the West and the USSR. Ernest Gellner’s is the best-known modernist explanatory theory of nationalism. Few writers in this century have been better placed to see and explain the peculiarities of modern industrial-capitalist civilisation. Gellner has valued positively those Soviet anthropologists who have disclaimed nomadic feudalism. 1975. Unfortunately, for many historians and ethnologists in the post-Soviet countries Marxism retains its influence. Kradin / Ernest Gellner and Debates on Nomadic Feudalism 165 properly historiographical one providing assessment of either au-thors or of their works. Khazanov (1981: 173, note 3) emphasises, though not so directly, his negative attitude vis-à-vis the feudal interpretation of nomadic societies. Volume 2, Number 2 / September 2003, Историческая психология и социология истории, Евро-азиатский Центр мегаистории и системного прогнозирования. However, this relaxation was sufficient enough to encourage many researchers to seek new approaches and propose non-traditional solutions of scientific problems. Gellner touches on two aspects of the problem considered in the chapter: a theoretical one concerning the heuristic possibilities of the Marxist method and a properly historiographical one providing assessment of either authors or of their works. A Year in the Soviet Union (An Interview with Nikki Keddie), Conditions of Liberty. Gellner rightly notes that most of data interpreted by Vladimirtsov as feudal concern the period of the empire and brings about the quite natural question: how right is it to use the feudal paradigm with respect to the non-imperial nomadic societies? If earlier they attempted to prove their right for a place in world history by proof of the existence of feudalism among their ancestors, then now they do it through declaring themselves partisans of civilisation. 1992. Gellner's sympathies in his analysis of the discussion are evident (unfortunately, one more supporter of Tolybekov, the Kazakh ethnologist Shakhmatov, was dropped from Gellner's field of vision). Neither nomads nor the East (the Orient) fit into the common evolution of In Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union the Marxist faith has collapsed and people are yearning for the return of pluralistic civil society in preference to strong, centralized states. 1971. Another large group of researchers has simply replaced the term ‘formation’ with the term ‘civilisation’. 1992. Foreword. 1984. IGAIMK 103: 165–199. 1 The textual meanings were adjusted by Peter Skalník and Dawn Hammond corrected the English. Marxism does not possess a monopoly of the economic interpretation of history. A special double issue of Cahiers du monde russe et soviétique 31 (2–3): 183–91. By giving proof of the class, feudal character of nomadic societies, Tolstov provides supportive data to the proposition of a presence in contemporary pastoral societies of the class of kulaks-bloodsuckers, the intensification of class struggle (according to Stalin's thesis) and, therefore, the necessity of the scientific substantiation of an unleashing of the class genocide against nomads of Central Asia, Siberia and Kazakhstan. At the same time, the specific traits of pastoral nomadic societies cannot be explained on the basis of mere logic of the internal development of nomads. It had been planned that each of those willing to participate in the review would present an analysis of those chapters for which s/he had competence.

Kochevye gosudarstva ot gunnov do manchzhurov [The Nomadic State from the Huns to Manchurians]. 1981. Lessnoff argues that Gellner saw Bolshevism as ‘an effective agent of economic and social modernization’ and that Marxism-Leninism as an ideology was for him ‘a kind of functional equivalent, a collectivist substitute, for the “Protestant ethic” of Calvinism’ (Lessnoff 2002: 55). 2002.
