Russia in the Age of Reaction and Reform, 1801-1881, Paperback

Russia in the Age of Reaction and Reform, 1801-1881 Paperback

Part of the Longman History of Russia series


This eagerly awaited study of Russia under Alexander I, Nicholas I and Alexander II -- the Russia of War and Peace and Anna Karenina -- brings the series near to completion.

David Saunders examines Russia's failure to adapt to the era of reform and democracy ushered into the rest of Europe by the French Revolution.

Why, despite so much effort, did it fail? This is a superb book, both as a portrait of an age and as a piece of sustained historical analysis.
