This article examines the course of Russia's wheat exports and suggests that the slower growth during the 1880s and 1890s markes a turning point when, under the impact of foreign competition and changes in demand for particular qualities of wheat, a new pattern of trade emerged.

This is a valuable unpublished ph.D thesis which analyzes in great detail the development of Black sea grain trade in the 19th century based on official statistical series of the Russian Empire. The port cities, their foundation and evolution over time forms the basis of the analysis of the rise of the Black sea region in the international grain trade and the role of this process to the economic development. The development of the Black sea region is linked to the expansion of the productive hinterland, the expansion of sea and land transportation networks and the diffusion of the technology of steam. /Η διδακτορική διατριβή αναφερει την ανάπτυξη του ρωσικού εμπορίου στη Μαύρη θάλασσα και τις επιπτώσεις του στην οικονομία της εποχής.

The Caucasus Mountains rise at the intersection of Europe, Russia, and the Middle East. A land of astonishing natural beauty and a dizzying array of ancient cultures, the Caucasus for most of the twentieth century lay inside the Soviet Union, before movements of national liberation created newly independent countries and sparked wars in Chechnya, Georgia, and Azerbaijan. The present volume recounts how tsars, highlanders, revolutionaries, and adventurers contributed to the fascinating history of this borderland, from the origins of modern disputes to debates over oil from the Caspian Sea and its impact on world markets.

This ground-breaking work documents Russian efforts to appropriate Western solutions to the problem of economic backwardness since the time of Catherine the Great. Entangled then as now with issues of cultural borrowing, educated Russians searched for Western nations, ideas, and social groups that embodied universal economic truths applicable to their own country. The present volume describes Russian Westernization--which emphasized German as well as Anglo-U.S. economics--while she raises important questions about core values of Western culture and how cultural values and priorities are determined.

This volume is a concise narrative of the history of Russia from the reign of Vladimir I the Saint, through to the reign of Ivan IV the Terrible. It emphasizes the dynamics of Russia's political evolution from the loose federation of principalities known as Kievan Rus' through the era of Mongol domination to the development of the Muscovite state. The analyses of the ruling dynasty, of economic influences on political development, and the explorations of society, foreign relations, religion, and culture provide a basis for understanding the transformations of the lands of Rus'.

In Russia, both rulers and ruled have long endeavoured to transform their country, each in their own forcible way. Their efforts never quite seemed to bring the results hoped for, and despite reform and revolution some things have changed very little. This book sets out to relate Russian tradition and circumstances to the events of history.

Η Οδησσός ιδρύθηκε το 1794 ως μια συνοριακή πόλη της Μαύρης θάλασσας για να μετατραπεί σύντομα σε ένα από τα πιο πολυσύχναστα λιμάνια της Ρωσίας. Έποικοι όλων των εθνικοτήτων αναζήτησαν την τύχη τους στην Οδησσό, μεταξύ των οποίων και Εβραίοι που προήλθαν από μια από τις πιο εύρωστες, πολυπληθέστερες και πολιτισμικά γόνιμες εβραϊκές κοινότητες της Ευρώπης. Η ιστορία της εβραϊκής Οδησσού εντοπίζει την άνοδο αυτή της κοινότητας από την ίδρυση της το 1794 έως τα πογκρόμ του 1881 που ξέσπασαν μετά τη δολοφονία του Αλέξανδρου ΙΙ. /Founded in 1794 as a frontier city on the Black Sea, Odessa soon grew to be one of Russia's busiest seaports. Settlers of all nationalities went there to seek their fortune, among them Jews who came to form one of the largest, wealthiest, and most culturally fertile Jewish communities in Europe. This history of Jewish Odessa traces the rise of that community from its foundation in 1794 to the pogroms of 1881 that erupted after the assassination of Alexander II. More a modern metropolis than any other Russian city with a significant Jewish population, Odessa offers a window into the diversity of Russian Jewish experience
