Not only did Ivan Dmitrievich Sytin build Sytin & Co. into the largest publishing concern in Russia prior to the Revolution, he also transformed Russian Word from an obscure, conservative newspaper into Russia's leading daily, with a circulation of over one million copies in 1917. Ruud shows that Sytin, a peasant-born villager who made millions in publishing, was truly an entrepreneur in the sense of Schumpeter's definition a risk-taker who is able to devise "new combinations of productive means."

Only in the 1960s did the Soviet government begin to praise Sytin as an important figure in the publishing industry. He is still virtually unknown in the West. Ruud brings Sytin to the forefront of the enterprising capitalists of his time, a group that significantly influenced the degree to which the modernization of methods and technology transformed Russia before the Revolution.
