The City in Late Imperial Russia by Michael…
MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
From the Great Reforms that began in the 1860s to the revolutions of 1917, the Russian Empire experienced a period of explosive urban growth. The City in Late Imperial Russia examines this process and the changes it brought in eight of the Empire's largest cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kiev, Warsaw, Riga, Odessa, Tiflis, and Baku. Individual chapters on each of these cities discussed changes in the economic fabric of the city and in the occupational and ethnic composition of the urban population. The quality of urban life, the nature and effectiveness of municipal government, and the possible impact of the changing environment on the growth of new forms of conflict and new attitudes toward community are also examined. Drawing on memoirs and literary sources as well as archival materials, published documents, and newspapers, the authors convey the flavor of city life and the personality of the urban population, highlighting each city's distinctive features as well as characteristics each had in common. - Jacket flap.… (more)
