This volume in the Oxford History of Modern Europe series surveys the development of the Russian empire from the reign of Alexander I to the abdication of Nicholas II. The book centres on political and social history - the history of institutions, classes, political movements, and individuals. Foreign policy is considered from the Russian rather that the general European angle. Attention is also paid to the non-Russian peoples, who formed half the population of what was essentially a multi-national empire. The author's aim has been to see the period as it was, not - as in many modern works - in terms of what happened after it.

The book draws on a large body of Russian documentary material, as well as on numerous Russian memoirs, contemporary comment by Russians and by foreign observers, and the important work of Soviet and foreign scholars. In its research, analysis, and interpretation, it is an exciting and original contribution to the study of pre-revolutionary Russia.

Review:

`The scholarship infusing this work is formidable.' Sunday Times

`Professor Seton-Watson's book is a major achievement. It will probably remain a standard work for a considerable number of years.' Times Educational Supplement `This excellent book ... will be a standard work for many years and should help all but the incurably lazy: riddles have answers and enigmas can be understood.' Guardian

`The scholarship infusing this book is formidable.' Sunday Times
