This paper deals with the general strike of 1902 in Rostov as one of the chain of events which led to the rise of a proletarian revolutionary movement. In particular it was the first instance in Russian history where a labor movement was combined with the organized educated classes for political change.

Αυτό το βιβλίο αναλύει τη διαδικασία μέσα από την οποία η Ρωσία εξελίχθηκε σε καπιταλιστική οικονομία και εκκίνησε ένα τεράστιο πλάνο εκβιομηχάνισης δίχως την ανάδυση μιας ώριμης αστικής τάξης. Το βασικό συμπέρασμα που προκύπτει είναι ότι η μοίρα των Ρώσων εμπόρων και βιομηχάνων ήταν αποτέλεσμα του ευρύτερου κοινωνικού κατακερματισμού της Ρωσίας την παραμονή του Α΄Παγκοσμίου πολέμου./This book analyzes how Russia developed into a capitalist economy and launched a major industrialization without giving rise to a mature bourgeoisie. The main conclusion that emerges is that the fate of the Russian merchants and industrialists was part of a larger social fragmentation in Russia on the eve of World War I.

The present study focuses on the most important business organization in imperial Russia. the Association of Industry and Trade, the nerve center of Russian capitalism in the years between the revolutions of 1905 and 1917. The book focuses on the analysis of the Association's policy positions on Russian economic development. Of particular interest are the insights the study affords into the peculiarities of Russian business -- including the operation of semi-monopolistic syndicates and the role of imported capital, banks, and the autocratic state.

Russia's southern frontier in the seventeenth century was continuously menaced by the nomadic Tatars who inhabited the open steppe grasslands. In this situation the Russian government attempted to harness all the frontier's sources to the cause of defence by founding a series of military towns which could control and direct the process of settlement. Government control, however, did not extend to the widespread illegal migration and settlement of runaway serfs. In a later period, as the Tatar threat subsided and colonization continued, the importance of most of the towns diminished and a system of secondary central places arose as trade expanded. But the oldest towns retained their importance in this changing social and economic situation, becoming higher-order central places for long-distance trade and, increasingly, centres for agricultural processing.

This study will focus on the confluence of Russian railroad development and its role in Russia‟s imperial intersections. It will analyze the construction of Russian railways as a locus point of imperial intersections between France and the Russian Empire and illustrate the profundity they can have. The Russian railways serve as a locus point for Russian industrialization, finance, international relations, military preparedness, top level government decision making with French military planning, security, financial interests, and international prestige. This case study is an attempt to illustrate the extent to which international relations between empires and their domestic policies were interconnected by the last half of the nineteenth century up until the outbreak of the First World War.

Old Odessa, on the Black Sea, gained notoriety as a legendary city of Jewish gangsters and swindlers, a frontier boomtown mythologized for the adventurers, criminals, and merrymakers who flocked there to seek easy wealth and lead lives of debauchery and excess. Odessa is also famed for the brand of Jewish humor brought there in the 19th century from the shtetls of Eastern Europe and that flourished throughout Soviet times. From a broad historical perspective, this volume examines the hybrid Judeo-Russian culture that emerged in Odessa in the 19th century and persisted through the Soviet era and beyond. The book shows how the art of eminent Soviet-era figures such as Isaac Babel, Il'ia Ilf, Evgenii Petrov, and Leonid Utesov grew out of the Odessa Russian-Jewish culture into which they were born and which shaped their lives.

The present volume examines the history of female entrepreneurship in the Russian Empire during nineteenth-century industrial development. According to Russian law, women enjoyed the same property rights as men, so the principle of separate personal property in marriage made it possible for a woman to be independent in business matters. This study uses statistical information on female entrepreneurs from 1814 to 1900, and sociologically analyzes the data on a wide range of enterprises, from cottage industries to large-scale manufacturing operations. It also includes lively case histories which reveal the background to a number of family fortunes including instances of bankruptcy and property litigations between close family members.

This volume presents first-time translations in English of the fundamental research of two eminent Soviet economic historians, P.I. Lyashchenko and A.M. Anfimov. The former was one of the most distinguished scholars of his time, and his History of the Russian National Economy is a classic. A.M. Anfimov has for long been one of the most redoubtable scholars of the Institute of History of the Soviet/Russian Academy of Sciences. "The essays deal with the grain trade and commercial agriculture in late Imperial Russia, substantially going against the trend of what is said about these subjects both in the USSR and in Euro-American literature. In the case of Imperial Russia's involvement in the international grain market, P.I. Lyashchenko indicates the experience was highly problematic. In the case of large scale capitalist agriculture in Russia of the same time, A.M. Anfimov demonstrates why it acted as a brake on improvements in production.

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.

Russia’s Age of Serfdom 1649-1861 offers a broad interpretive history of the Russian Empire from the time of serfdom’s codification until its abolition following the Crimean War.
It considers the institution of serfdom, official social categories, and Russia’s development as a country of peasants ruled by nobles, military commanders, and civil servants and the reality of absolute monarchy in Russia, with special emphasis on the mobilization of human and material resources, the search for regular government, and the persistence of personal-moral forms of authority.
