Vospominaniya Montessori-pedagoga [Russian Woman Teacher: Reminiscences of Pedagogue Montessori]. Vol. 1; D.G. Sorokov. Russkaya uchitelnitsa. Semeinyie istorii i metod nauchnoi pedagogiki Yulii Fausek [Russian Woman Teacher: Yulia Fausek's Family Stories and Method of Scientific Pedagogy]. Vol. 2, Moscow, Forum Publishers, 2010. This work is examined at an intersection of several meaning components — in the context of the brief and dramatic history of the turn-of-the-20th-century generation, combining politicians, men of letters, scientists, and the artistic boheme, while educational activity links these environments together as a way of transmitting a copious cultural and natural-scientific reserve. The book is then considered in the context of the formation of the "teacher's canon" and the "teacher's mission" which took shape in Russian cultural consciousness and everyday life in the 19th—20th centuries. The third element of the work is the context of contemporary publishing practices and scholarly projects ("semiotics of childhood," issuing of literature dealing with educational subjects, publication of new data and documents) and an analysis of the ways to restore and reconstruct individual episodes from an unwritten history of Russian education.
