Overview

Politics and Society in Provincial Russia is the first attempt by a group of western and Soviet historians to examine the major issues in late Imperial Russian history and the Revolution from the vantage point of a single province. The contributors provide a description and an analysis of the major social and political developments of the era from the Great Reforms through 1917 as they were played our in this Volga River province (located about 600 miles southeast of Moscow), while giving a vivid sense of how provincial Russians responded to and helped shape the dramatic events of the period. What emerges is a collective portrait of one of the most exciting and volatile regions of the Russian Empire.
