"Eighteen articles, mainly by US, Russian, and British scholars, cover various aspects of the Russian Empire from its foundation under Peter the Great to the rule of Stalin. The Russian participants, mostly historians and political scientists, come from the two Russian capitals and various other cities. The major focus is the geographies of rule in Russia.... The materials are derived in large part from Russian archives, especially those in Moscow. Several good maps aid readers' comprehension.... Recommended." —Choice
