Focusing on the period when New York City was transformed from a nineteenth-century mercantile center to a modern metropolis, this volume offers an entirely new view of the history of power and public policy in the nation's largest urban community.

Opening with a fresh and original interpretation of the metropolitan region's economic and social history between 1890 and 1910, it goes on to show how various population groups used their economic, social, cultural, and political resources to shape the decisions that created the modern city. As New York grew in size and complexity, its economic and social interests were forced to compete and form alliances. Building on this account of this interplay among numerous elites, it concludes with a new interpretation of the history of power in New York and other American cities between 1890 and 1950.

The present volume places Imperial and Soviet Russia in a European context. Russia shared in a larger European modernity marked by increased overlap and sometimes merger of realms that had previously been treated as discrete entities: the social and the political, state and society, government and economy, and private and public. These were attributes of Soviet dictatorship, but their origins can be located in a larger European context and in the emergence of modern forms of government in Imperial Russia/ Το βιβλίο αναλύει όλους τους παράγοντες που οδήγησαν στον εκσυγχρονισμό της ρωσικής κοινωνίας κατά το 19ο αιώνα.

Το εθνικό ζήτημα και πως επιβάλλεις τον έλεγχο σε ετερόκλιτες εθνικές ταυτότητες υπήρξε πάντα πρόβλημα του ρωσικού κράτους. Αυτή η μελέτη για τη Ρωσία ως πολυεθνική αυτοκρατορία εκτίνεται από τα αυτοκρατορικά χρόνια, το 16ο αιώνα, έως και το 1917, με μεγαλύτερη έμφαση στην σοβιετική περίοδο. Ένα από τα βασικά ερωτήματα του βιβλίου είναι πως οι Ρώσοι ενσωμάτωσαν νέες περιοχές, τι αντιστάσεις συνάντησαν, ποιός ήταν ο χαρακτήρας της αυτοκρατορίας και πως αυτό συνδέθηκε με τον εθνικισμό./The "national question" and how to impose control over its diverse ethnic identities has long posed a problem for the Russian state. This major survey of Russia as a multi-ethnic empire spans the imperial years from the sixteenth century to 1917, with major consideration of the Soviet phase. It asks how Russians incorporated new territories, how they were resisted, what the character of a multi-ethnic empire was and how, finally, these issues related to nationalism.

Ο παρών τόμος είναι μια περιγραφή της ζωντανής και πολυπολιτισμικής πόλης της Οδησσού, του κύριου λιμανιού της Μαύρης θάλασσας, της κοσμοπολίτικης πόλης των εφευρετών και των ιδιοφυών, της οποίας η εβραϊκή κοινότητα αποτελούσε σημαντικό κομμάτι. Επίσης αναλύει τις διώξεις και την μαζική δολοφονία των Εβραίων από τους Ρουμάνους κατακτητές της πόλης κατά το Δεύτερο Παγκόσμιο Πόλεμο./The present volume is a description of the vibrant, multicultural tapestry of the city of Odessa, the greatest port of the Black sea, a cosmopolitan city of innovators and geniuses, in which a thriving Jewish population formed an essential part. It also examines the mass murder of Jews carried out by the city’s Romanian occupiers during the World War II.

Ο παρών τόμος αναλύει την χριστιανική αναβίωση . Αντλώντας από αδημοσίευτα αρχεία της Οδησσού, της Συμφερόπολης και της Αγίας Πετρούπολης, η παρούσα μελέτη παρέχει μια περίπτωση θρησκευτικού εθνικισμού στο παρελθόν και στο παρόν και των πολιτικών συγκρούσεων και υποχωρήσεων, εγγενείς σε ιερούς τόπους./The present volume analyzes the Christian renewal in Crimea. Drawing on unpublished archives in Odessa, Simferopol, and St. Petersburg, the volume provides a case study of past and present religious nationalism in Eastern Europe and an examination of the political conflicts and compromises endemic to holy places.

This book is a major survey of urbanization and the making of modern Europe from the mid-eighteenth century to the First World War. During these years Europe experienced startling rates of urbanization, with the populations of numerous cities growing by 1000 percent or more. This book explores the causes, course and consequences of this urban explosion. The authors link urban growth to industrialization, migration, and the growth of colonial empires. They show how the social, political, and intellectual challenges cities posed were met by urban reformers; how cities enriched cultural life; and how European cities influenced and were influenced by colonial cities.
