Russian Capitalism on Trial: The Case of the Jacks of Hearts

  • Sergei Antonov
Extract

For almost a month in 1877, the Russian public was engrossed in one of the largest nonpolitical trials in the history of Russian law. An alleged criminal organization dubbed the “Jacks of Hearts Club” (Klub chervonnykh valetov) involved 48 defendants in addition to several who had died or managed to escape, as well as more than 300 witnesses. The charges included dozens of episodes of fraud and forgery committed between 1866 and 1875, in addition to one murder and one count of sacrilege. Even more sensational was the fact that the group of defendants belonged to “respectable” society, among them wealthy merchants, landowning nobles, and even a member of the aristocratic Dolgorukov family. In the Russian popular lexicon, a “Jack of Hearts” became enduring shorthand for a personable young swindler of upper-class origins. Over the years, the story grew in the telling, with some of the legends travelling from author to author, such as the story of Pavel Speier, the alleged leader of the club who supposedly tricked a naïve English tourist into “buying” the official residence of the Moscow governor general on Tverskaia Street.

6. Perhaps the most helpful recent contribution is a collection of essays on bribery and the unofficial exchange of favors (known in the Soviet period as blat) in imperial, Soviet, and post-Soviet Russia, which helpfully separates these phenomena from any moralizing context, and establishes them within a complex and dynamic cultural, political, and legal context. Lovell, Stephen, Ledeneva, Alena, and Rogachevskii, Andrei, eds. Bribery and Blat in Russia: Negotiating Reciprocity from the Middle Ages to the 1990s (New York: St. Martin's Press, 2000). See also Fitzpatrick, Sheila, Tear Off the Masks! Identity and Imposture in Twentieth-Century Russia (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2005). However, the several fine existing studies of imperial era crime and criminal justice only address lower-class, mostly violent criminality, although sometimes through the prism of middle-class perceptions and anxieties. Frank, Stephen, Crime, Cultural Conflict, and Justice in Rural Russia, 1856–1914 (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1999); McReynolds, Murder Most Russian; and Neuberger, Joan, Hooliganism: Crime, Culture, and Power in St. Petersburg, 1900–1914 (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1993). Swindlers and tricksters are occasionally mentioned in the literature, but are hardly ever recognized as a discrete legal and historical problem, and are not treated as substantively different from pickpockets and burglars, with the exception of Harriet Murav's fine study of Avraam Uri Kovner, a Jewish nihilist and sometime bank embezzler, who also spent time in prison alongside the Jacks of Hearts before their trial. Murav, Harriet, Identity Theft: The Jew in Imperial Russia and the Case of Avraam Uri Kovner (Stanford: Stanford University Press, 2003). Roshanna Sylvester examines the criminal underworld in the southern port city of Odessa through the lens of the middle-class popular press; assuming the existence of a “legitimate world” distinct from a criminal one. Her discussion of “con artists,” therefore, represents them as lower-class criminals who deployed middle-class “conventions of fashion, manners, and speech,” which they did not legitimately possess. See Sylvester, , Tales of Old Odessa: Crime and Civility in a City of Thieves (DeKalb: Northern Illinois Press, 2005), esp. 5557 ; see also Tanny, Jarrod, City of Rogues and Schnorrers: Russia's Jews and the Myth of Old Odessa (Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2011).

This version is shorter and contains occasional differences in wording that are not material for the purposes of this article.

The term “white-collar crime” only appeared in the twentieth century, defined by the American sociologist Sutherland, Edwin H. as “a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation.” See White Collar Crime (New York: Dryden Press, 1949), 7 . This definition appears today as too restrictive because it leaves out frauds and forgeries committed by “respectable” individuals who do not have a position of power and responsibility within commercial organizations. It also leaves out swindlers who merely pose as “respectable.” See, for example, Meier, William M., “Aristocrats of Crime: Confidence Men in the Interwar Years,” in Property Crime in London, 1850-Present (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2011), 85108 .

78. Russia's criminal law contained a special provision against fraud committed by claiming to be another's agent or servant or by appropriating a false name (all punishable by 6 months to a year in prison and possibly by penal exile). The punishment was more severe if the criminal claimed to be a government official or used any kind of uniform or decoration to which he or she was not entitled. See SZ, vol. 15/1 (1857), art. 2253–54.

79. Foinitskii, Moshennichestvo, part 2, 2–5.

80. Ibid., 66–67. Foinitskii was only a law professor and not a judge, and he noted that some of the post-reform courts did not agree with his interpretation, as in a decision in which the appellate court in St. Petersburg ruled that borrowing money and then denying having done so and refusing to pay constituted criminal fraud.

See Political Crime in Late Imperial Russia,” The Journal of Modern History 74 (2000): 62100 .

149. Conspiracy charges were also important in the earlier political trials: for example, even before the court reform was implemented in 1866, the government alleged the existence of an organization known as “Hell” (Ad) that was supposedly responsible for Dmitrii Karakozov's attempt to shoot Alexander II. Conspiracy charges were also central to Russia's first public political trial—that of Sergei Nechaev's followers—in 1871.
