Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"... the first study of the Russian Empire in English which attempts in a sophisticated way, using the latest developments in colonial studies, to deal not only with imperial rule but with the mutual encounter with the non-Russian peoples.... a new paradigm for looking at the imperial history of tsarist Russia." --Ronald Grigor Suny

"... ambitious, wide-ranging, and ultimately provocative... " --Slavic Review

"This excellent volume draws on the expertise of both young and established specialists... the volume is a pleasure to read." --American Historical Review

"... a major step toward 'discovering Russian Asia'... a job well done." --The Russian Review

Russia's Orient investigates the relationship between the Russian Empire and the non-Russian peoples of its southern and eastern borderlands from the 18th to the early 20th centuries.

Book News Annotation:

From a 1994 conference (U. of California, Berkeley), Borderlands Research Group participants present their findings based on unprecedented access to the hinterlands of what is the now the CIS. Fourteen contributors provide context for the current self- deterministic ethnic turmoil in Chechyna and elsewhere far from the Kremlin, via discussions of tsarist colonial policies and historical, heartland majority attitudes toward the "ignoble savages and unfaithful subjects" (read Muslim) of Russia's diverse Orient.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [317]-331) and index.
