The End of Imperial Russia, 1855-1917 Paperback

Part of the European History in Perspective series


This book explores the long-term reasons for the demise of Imperial Russia, examining the failure of the autocratic state to strengthen its own political position while economic change transformed society.

It seeks to explain its debilitating internal tensions and to link these to the pressures exerted by Russia's repeated failure in war and by the empire's continuing expansion.

Lastly, it analyzes what lead to Russia being governed, only eight months after the collapse of Tsarism, by the Bolsheviks' revolutionary regime.
