  • On the Centenary of Revolution
    • Abstract: On the eve of the 1917 Revolution, [the writer] Alexander Grin wrote, "And the future seems to have stopped standing in its proper place." Now, a hundred years later, the future is, once again, not where it ought to be. Our time comes to us secondhand.The bicentennial of the French Revolution was an "international extravaganza" that culminated on 14 July 1989 with a week of celebrations, including a huge military parade, an inaugural concert at the newly built Bastille Opera, official visits by some 30 heads of state, an open-air rock and jazz concert, fireworks, and street carnivals.2 As the Tiananmen Square Massacre had occurred just a month earlier, Chinese students in France were invited to march, and they wore ...

  • Prince Mikhail of Chernigov: From Maneuverer to Martyr
    • Abstract: On 20 September 1246, Mikhail Vsevolodovich, the prince of Chernigov (Chernihiv), and his boyar Fedor were killed in the Horde by the order of Batu Khan. This event made an impression on contemporaries and reverer-berated for centuries in the hagiographic Tale about the Murder of Mikhail, which insists that Mikhail was executed solely due to his defiant refusal to perform pagan rites required before a personal visit to the khan.1 Preoccupied with how he died, historians have overlooked compelling evidence that Mikhail submitted to the Mongols only after a sincere but failed attempt to join the fight against them in Central Europe.This article provides the first extensive analysis of Mikhail's behavior in 1241 in ...

  • "Pillars of the Nation": The Making of a Russian Muslim Intelligentsia and
           the Origins of Jadidism
    • Abstract: Historians who study imperial Russia's Muslims have long used the term "intelligentsia" as well as the corresponding Turkic words such as ziyâlιlar and aydιnlar (enlightened ones) to refer to or in relation to a turn of the 20th-century phenomenon that is otherwise known as "Jadidism" (cedîdcilik), which might loosely be interpreted as modernist or progressive reformism among the tsarist empire's Muslims.1 The Kazan Tatar-origin Turkish scholar Akdes Nimet Kurat, for instance, describes Jadidism in a seminal 1966 article as a social and cultural movement with political implications that emerged from the introduction of usûl-i cedîd (the new method), or modern education, among Russia's Muslims by the famous Crimean ...

  • Under the Red Star's Faint Light: How Sakhalin Became Soviet
    • Abstract: On 1 May 1946, the large square in front of Iuzhno-Sakhalinsk's main station was crowded with a peculiar mix of people. A photograph shows some of them dressed up as seals, holding handwritten signs in Russian and Japanese. The crowd, consisting of former Toyohara residents and newly arrived Soviet citizens from all over the USSR, had gathered to honor the "Soviet heroes" on International Workers' Day.1 The snapshot from a Soviet official's photo album conveys an image of friendly coexistence. However, between December 1946 and December 1949, close to 300,000 Japanese civilians, most of whom had moved to the southern part of the island in the wake of the Russo-Japanese War, were forced to leave their homes—which ...

  • Translating the State: Czechoslovakia's Search for the Soviet Model of the
           Secret Police, 1945–52
    • Abstract: In January 1948, a month before the communist takeover of Czechoslovakia, Czech secret police official Jindřich Veselý went on an observation tour of the Polish secret police. His aim, as he wrote to the Central Committee in Prague, was to "become closely familiar with the organization of the Ministry of Public Security of Poland and, above all, the work of the state security organ and intelligence services."1 While there, he conversed with Polish secret police officials, took notes on the organization of their forces, and compared and contrasted what he saw with the policing institutions of his own country. His notes reveal the differences in the communist secret police forces that had been built in each country ... Read More

  • An Introduction from the Editors
    • Abstract: Boris Nikolaevich Mironov first came to the attention of a wide range of Russian specialists in 1999 with the publication of his monumental Sotsial´naia istoriia Rossii perioda imperii.1 Richly documented and wide-ranging in its topics and themes, the work was a tour de force and quickly began garnering a reputation, coming out in rapid order in English translation, two lightly revised Russian editions, and now a fourth significantly expanded edition that includes substantial new material as well as a new title. Gone is the long and not exactly made-for-marketing original name. The new version is called simply Rossiiskaia imperiia: Ot traditsii k modernu (Russian Empire: From Traditions to the Modern).2Mironov's ... Read More

  • Cannon Fodder for the Revolution: The Russian Proletariat in 1917
    • Abstract: According to Marxist theory, the working class represents the principal dynamic force of the revolution because of its important intrinsic qualities—namely, its discipline and capacity to organize, its sense of solidarity and collective spirit, and its ability to engage in collective action. The workers' most important quality, however, is their supposed understanding and mastery of the socialist creed (simvol sotsialisticheskoi very), which is itself understood to be the direct result of their class consciousness. A true proletarian understands the difference between capitalism and socialism, between bourgeois and socialist revolution, and he knows the path ahead. He also appreciates the leading role he is ...

  • Interrogating Working-Class Lives: Evidence in Social History
    • Abstract: This short and provocative article claims to debunk Soviet mythologies of Russia's working class, but in so doing it perpetuates an alternative mythology of an undifferentiated, ill-educated, and violent working class that was effectively a group of marionettes dancing to the command of the political elite. Boris Mironov explains the prominence of the Bolsheviks among the urban working class as a triumph of the most radical and most aggressive rhetoric; in Mironov's vision, the working class was manipulated into massive sacrifice by the machinations of a professional revolutionary body. These conclusions disempower and dehumanize the urban working population. This response problematizes the methodologies and ... Read More

  • Talkin' about Class Formation
    • Abstract: Reading Boris Mironov's assessment of the role of workers in the 1917 revolution immediately swept me back to the 1970s, when an entire cohort of historians of Russia engaged with a broader community of historians of labor to reassess the prevailing view of Russian workers as "dark masses" (from the right) or "red masses" (from the left). Seeking to replace condescension with respect for individuals as well as for sources, we social historians sought to interrogate these generalizations, whether from the right or the left, whether about "irrational" peasant-workers or monolithic working-class armies.1 In bringing these methods to the study of the 1917 revolution, this cohort—whether looking at workers, peasants ...

  • On Cannon Fodder and Straw Men
    • Abstract: This summer I read with great admiration my St. Petersburg Institute of History colleague Boris Mironov's monumental Rossiiskaia imperiia: Ot traditsii k modernu (yes, all three volumes!). In more than 2,100 pages Mironov amasses here an extraordinary amount of statistical and other material arranged to evidence a familiar, even shopworn argument: that contrary to the best late and post-Soviet scholarship both in Russia and abroad, imperial Russia was on a firm path to European modernization in ways that deny its view as a failing state or that the "principle and necessary cause of revolution was the oppression and impoverishment of the narod."1 In Mironov's view, the "direct cause of the Russian revolutions was ...

  • The Workers Question and Revolutionary Gamesmanship in 1917
    • Abstract: The Russian people did not like Tsar Nicholas II and got it into their heads to remove him. The tsar carried out the desire of the people and abdicated. Having received freedom, the people began to rob and kill each other.On the first of March tsarism was overthrown, and the Provisional Government took its place. But it soon reduced Russia to an impossible state.The comments offered by my discussants are at once interesting and open to debate. All three wish I had engaged a greater number of issues in the article and gone into greater detail, but it is simply not possible in a text of 7,000 words to take on the entire issue of the history of the working class. The specific objective of my article determined its ... Read More

  • Transimperial Muslims, the Modernizing State, and Local Politics in the
           Late Imperial Volga-Ural Region
    • Abstract: The Volga-Ural region has been a focal point of the historiography on Russian imperial policies toward the multiconfessional borderlands. With its diverse Slavic, Turkic, and Finno-Ugric populations made up of Orthodox, Muslims, and animists, the region emerged as a critical battleground of sorts during the second half of the 19th century, when imperial traditions of tolerance seemed to jostle and compete with modernizing trends that were moving the country toward ever greater homogeneity and administrative rationalization.1 The result was a complicated ambiguity. On the one hand, the region came to be seen as a would-be crucible of Russianness, a place where the Russian nation (supposedly) had to stand tall and ... Read More

  • Between Party and People(s)—Where Music Sounds
    • Abstract: Berlin, Christmas 1989: The renowned conductor Leonard Bernstein visited the capital to give two concerts in the West Berlin Philharmonie and the East Berlin Schauspielhaus. Only weeks before, the Berlin Wall had fallen. During his interpretation of Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony in the Schauspielhaus, Bernstein decided to surprise his audience. When the choir finally raised its voice to intone Schiller's "Ode an die Freude," the singers proclaimed "Freiheit, schöner Götterfunken" (Freedom, o wondrous spark divine) instead of the original "Freude, schöner Götterfunken" (Joy, o wondrous spark divine). Some criticized Bernstein for his naughty reinterpretation of the iconic work, but the media praised the ... Read More

  • Both Sides Now
    • Abstract: These three books, written by Soviet-born individuals, are about the same thing: what it meant to be Soviet and the radical, wrenching adjustments that perestroika and the end of the Soviet Union required. Other authors—political scientists, anthropologists, and historians—have tried their hand before at analyzing late Soviet socialism and the transition(s) to the Russia of the 21st century. Among them, Alexei Yurchak's account of komsomol´tsy unconsciously practicing post-Soviet behavior before 1991, Stephen Kotkin's structuralist approach to why Mikhail Gorbachev's renovationist efforts were doomed, and Serguei Oushakine's exploration of psychic trauma in Barnaul have nearly owned the territory, ceding some ...
