Overview

"... a signal contribution to a growing literature on a phenomenon
that has become tragically pervasive in the 20th century.... This highly original
account combines exemplary empirical research with the judicious application of
diverse methods to explore the far-reaching ramifications of 'a whole empire
walking.'" -- Vucinich Prize citation

"An important
contribution not only to modern Russian history but also to an ongoing repositioning
of Russia in broader European and world historical processes.... elegantly
written... highly innovative." -- Europe-Asia Studies

Drawing on previously unused archival material in Russia, Latvia,
and Armenia and on insights from social and critical theory, Peter Gatrell considers
the origins of displacement and its political implications and provides a close
analysis of humanitarian initiatives and the relationships between refugees and the
communities in which they settled.
