Synopsis:

A broad, panoramic view of Russian imperial society from the era of Peter the Great to the revolutions of 1917, Wirtschafter’s study sets forth a challenging interpretation of one of the world’s most powerful and enduring monarchies. A sophisticated synthesis that combines extensive reading of recent scholarship with archival research, it focuses on the interplay of Russia’s key social groups with one another and the state. The result is a highly original history of Russian society that illuminates the relationships between state building, large-scale social structures, and everyday life.

Beginning with an overview of imperial Russia’s legal and institutional structures, Wirtschafter analyzes the “ruling” classes and service elites (the land-owning nobility, the civil and military servicemen, the clergy) and then examines the middle groups (the raznochintsy, the commercial-industrial elites, the professionals, the intelligentsia) before turning to the peasants, townspeople, and factory workers. Wirtschafter argues that those very social, political, and legal relationships that have long been viewed as sources of conflict and crisis in fact helped to promote integration and foster the stability that ensured imperial Russia’s survival.

About the Author: Elise Kimerling Wirtschafter is professor of history at California State Polytechnic University in Pomona. She is the author of several books, including Religion and Enlightenment in Catherinian Russia (NIU Press, 2013).
