MEDIA REVIEWS

"A stimulating synthesis of a wide range of material pertaining to Russia on the eve of World War I. Uses newspaper reportage of events and incidents in 1913, not only to add the flavor of the times, but also to give evidence of the complexity of the country, a complexity that many conventional generalizations ignore."--Joseph Bradley, University of Tulsa


"Superbly crafted and magisterial. Dowler's challenging of the myths of Russia's economic and social backwardness, its peasantry's savagery and brutality, and a homogeneous state in opposition to society at large is empirically and historiographically based. So much happened in 1913 that it is surprising that no historian before Dowler thought to do such a study!"--Christine Worobec, author of "Possessed: Women, Witches, and Demons in Imperial Russia"

Joseph Bradley, University of Tulsa"


Dowler does a great service to the profession with his assessment and compilation of relevant historiographic trends and arguments that often challenge the traditional narrative . . . The volume provides a solid overview of the various elements of pre-war Russian society, emphasizing cohesion and cooperation over revolution and providing a sense of the complexity of Imperial Russia on the eve of its transformation.

Superbly crafted and magisterial. Dowler s challenging of the myths of Russia s economic and social backwardness, its peasantry s savagery and brutality, and a homogeneous state in opposition to society at large is empirically and historiographically based. So much happened in 1913 that it is surprising that no historian before Dowler thought to do such a study!
