This is the first book to place Russia's 'long' eighteenth century squarely in its European context. The conceptual framework is set out in an opening critique of modernisation which, while rejecting its linear implications, maintains its focus on the relationship between government, economy and society. Following a chronological introduction, a series of thematic chapters (covering topics such as finance and taxation, society, government and politics, culture, ideology, and economy) emphasise the ways in which Russia's international ambitions as an emerging great power provoked administrative and fiscal reforms with wide-ranging (and often unanticipated) social consequences. This thematic analysis allows Simon Dixon to demonstrate that the more the tsars tried to modernise their state, the more backward their empire became. A chronology and critical bibliography are also provided to allow students to discover more about this colourful period of Russian history.

Die Geschichte der Bildung im Zarenreich ist ein noch wenig untersuchtes Themenfeld. Liegen die im 18. und in der ersten Halfte des 19. Jahrhunderts entwickelten Bildungskonzepte schon selten im Blickpunkt der Forschung, so ist die Frage nach ihrer Umsetzung ganzlich ungeklart. Gelang es dem Staat ueber seine Versuche, ein sakulares Bildungswesen fuer die Elite, aber auch breitere Bevolkerungsschichten zu errichten, einen Sozialkorper zu schaffen, der sich ueber die erworbene Bildung definierte? Kusber gleicht die Leitgedanken des Bildungsdiskurses mit den Inhalten ab, die die spezifischen Untertanenschichten in unterschiedlichem Ausmaa erreichten. Dabei nimmt er auch die Regionen des Vielvolkerreiches Russland differenziert in den Blick. "Ein wichtiges und sehr reiches Buch, an dem Lehre und Forschung nicht vorbeikommen werden." H-Soz-u-Kult "a ein wertvolles Standardwerka" Das Historisch-Politische Buch aThis monumental dissertation from Christian Albrecht University in Kiel fills (a) gap and will be of immense value to all those interested in the subject. [a] The book is so rich in detailed information that it will remain a basic source of reference for a long time. [a] historians of the imperial period must be grateful to Kusber for building a solid foundation for further research.o Slavic Review .

Rex A. Wade presents an essential overview of the Russian Revolution from its beginning in February 1917, through the numerous political crises under Kerensky, to the victory of Lenin and the Bolsheviks in the October Revolution. This thoroughly revised and expanded third edition introduces students to new approaches to the Revolution's political history and clears away many of the myths and misconceptions that have clouded studies of the period. It also gives due space to the social history of the Revolution, incorporating people and places too often left out of the story, including women, national minority peoples, peasantry, and front soldiers. The third edition has been updated to include new scholarship on topics such as the coming of the Revolution and the beginning of Bolshevik rule, as well as the Revolution's cultural context. This highly readable book is an invaluable guide to one of the most important events of modern history.

This book, first published in 2005, is a major history of the dramatic and enduring changes in the daily lives of poor European women and men in the nineteenth century. Rachel G. Fuchs conveys the extraordinary difficulties facing the destitute from England to Russia, paying particular attention to the texture of women's everyday lives. She shows their strength as they attempted to structure a life and set of relationships within a social order, culture, community, and the law. Within a climate of calamities, the poor relied on their own resourcefulness and community connections where the boundaries between the private and public were indistinguishable, and on a system of exchange and reciprocity to help them fashion their culture of expediencies. This accessible synthesis introduces readers to conflicting interpretations of major historic developments and evaluates those interpretations. It will be essential reading for students of women's and gender studies, urban history and social and family history.

Die aus Deutschland stammende und von der Aufklärung beeinflusste spätere Zarin Katharina die Große schildert in ihren eigenhändig verfassten, bis 1759 reichenden Memoiren die ersten Jahre am Hof ihres Ehemanns Zar Peter III., den sie 1762 stürzen sollte. Die Erinnerungen geben dabei einen überaus intimen Einblick in das Leben am Zarenhof und das feudalistische Herrschaftssystem der Epoche. Ergänzt werden die von Alexander Herzen übersetzten Memoiren mit zahlreichen Texten anderer Höflinge aus Katharinas Umgebung.
