9780253220202: A Russian Merchant's Tale: The Life and Adventures of Ivan Alekseevich TolchŽnov, Based on His Diary (Indiana-Michigan Series in Russian and East European Studies)

Based on the rare diary of an 18th-century Russian provincial merchant, A Russian Merchant's Tale presents a revealing portrait of Russia's little-known commercial class. By recording his daily contacts with a wide array of individuals from lords to laborers for more than 40 years, Ivan Alekseevich Tolchënov opened a window onto the education, work, birth, death, marriage, business, civic, holiday, and religious practices of a social group about which little has been known. Using the tools of microhistory to interpret the diary, David L. Ransel vividly brings to life Tolchënov's self-construction, his relations with family and society, and his entire world of aspirations, achievements, and failures. Challenging prevailing stereotypes of Russian merchants as tradition-bound and narrow-minded, A Russian Merchant's Tale offers important new insights into the social history of imperial Russia.

From the Publisher:

"A Russian Merchant's Tale will change fundamentally the way we think about imperial Russian society." --Daniel Kaiser, co-editor of Reinterpreting Russian History: Readings, 860-1860s.

"David Ransel has teased out of a text largely made up of laconic references to obscure people and places a story that is compelling to read and sheds light on important aspects of imperial Russian social and cultural history. . . . An impressively researched, beautifully constructed book." --Alexander Martin, author of Romantics, Reformers, Reactionaries: Russian Conservative Politics in the Age of Alexander I
