"Anyone wishing to understand the 'state of the field' in
Imperial Russian history would do well to start with this
collection." Theodore W. Weeks, H-Net Reviews
"The essays are impressive in terms of research
conceptualization, and analysis." Slavic Review
Presenting the results of new research and fresh approaches, the
historians whose work is highlighted here seek to extend new
thinking about the way imperial Russian history is studied and
taught. Populating their essays are a varied lot of ordinary
Russians of the 18th and 19th centuries, from a luxury-loving
merchant and his extended family to reform-minded clerics and
soldiers on the frontier. In contrast to much of traditional
historical writing on Imperial Russia, which focused heavily on the
causes of its demise, the contributors to this volume investigate
the people and institutions that kept Imperial Russia functioning
over a long period of time."
