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 is a 2005 edition of Mack P. Holt's classic study of the French religious wars of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Drawing on the scholarship of social and cultural historians of the Reformation, it shows how religion infused both politics and the socio-economic tensions of the period to produce a long extended civil war. Professor Holt integrates court politics and the political theory of the elites with the religious experiences of the popular classes, offering a fresh perspective on the wars and on why the French were willing to kill their neighbors in the name of religion. The book has been created specifically for undergraduates and general readers with no background knowledge of either French history or the Reformation. This edition updates the text in the light of new work published in the decade prior to publication and the 'Suggestions for further reading' has been completely re-written.
