About the Authors
  • The second volume of The Cambridge History of Russia covers the imperial period (1689–1917). It encompasses political, economic, social, cultural, diplomatic, and military history. All the major Russian social groups have separate chapters and the volume also includes surveys on the non-Russian peoples and the government's policies towards them. It addresses themes such as women, law, the Orthodox Church, the police and the revolutionary movement. The volume's seven chapters on diplomatic and military history, and on Russia's evolution as a great power, make it the most detailed study of these issues available in English. The contributors come from the USA, UK, Russia and Germany: most are internationally recognised as leading scholars in their fields, and some emerging younger academics engaged in cutting-edge research have also been included. No other single volume in any language offers so comprehensive, expert and up-to-date an analysis of Russian history in this period.

    • Most comprehensive and authoritative single-volume history of imperial Russia in existence
    • Unique coverage of imperial Russia, encompassing social, political, economic, cultural, diplomatic, and military history
    • Second volume in the new three-volume Cambridge History of Russia

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The present collection of essays is the middle volume of three on Russia's history from early Rus' to the end of the twentieth century, giving Russia far more sustained attention than in any previous Cambridge History, and in remarkably wide-ranging and variegated way."
    Mark D. Steinberg, Canadian Slavonic Papers
