The Tsarist Secret Police Abroad: Policing Europe in a Modernising World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book describes how in 1883, the Russian police established the Foreign Agentura in Paris. The bureau's brief: to forewarn Tsardom of terrorist plans and, if possible, to defuse acts of terrorism against high personages by revolutionaries operating under European sanctuary. As the revolutionary emigration expanded, the Foreign Agentura reacted by spreading its tentacles across Europe and England. With the help of their European colleagues, the Tsar's agents tackled and drove back this terrorist force, proving themselves invaluable in the evolution of political policing.

Book News Annotation:

Studies of the rise of policing in Europe have tended to neglect the development of Russian policing. In his study of the Russian political policing of the emigr<'e> community, Zuckerman (history, U. of Adelaide, Australia) seeks to "Europeanize" his topic, placing it within wider contexts of the development of industrialization and its attendant social and political conflicts. He explores the development of the Foreign Agentura, first established in Paris in 1883 in order to battle the growth of anarchism and socialism among Russian emigr<'e>s and gradually spreading across Europe and to the United States.
