This essay by Dmitry Arzyutov and Nikolai Vakhtin introduces a collection

Bogoras. It presents the short biography and bibliography of Bogoras.
It discusses his (and his colleague Lev Shternberg’s) contribution to
the formation of Arctic (Siberian) anthropology in St Petersburg,
and the ambivalent character of Bogoras’ personality, a “two-faced
Janus” as he called himself.
