Nicholas I, emperor and autocrat of all the Russias by W. Bruce Lincoln( Book )

31 editions published between 1978 and 1989 in English and German and held by 1,460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This present study, among other things, redresses the balance to some extent in Nicholas's favor. Certainly it is not intended as an apology for Russia's firm, sometimes cruel, Emperor. It is, however, an effort to view Nicholas as his contemporaries saw him and, given the distance of some 150 years since his accession, to place him and his policies in a more balanced historical perspective. - Preface
The conquest of a continent : Siberia and the Russians by W. Bruce Lincoln( Book )

24 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 1,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This epic of adventure, heroism, discovery, exploitation, and almost unimaginable cruelty is perhaps unrivaled in human history. It is a sweeping account of the conquest of a formidable landmass millions of square miles bigger than the United States, a story of tremendous human adventure, military exploits, economic power, and geographic discovery. A virtual continent, Siberia contains the world's wildest frontier and its richest storehouse of natural resources. From the time Attila the Hun stormed out of Asia to terrorize Europe, and the fierce Mongol chieftain Chingis Khan shaped an empire larger than the Soviet Union, here are the rulers, statesmen, explorers, and convicts who took part in the saga of the nations and empires that formed their destinies in the vast forests and steppes of Eurasia
Sunlight at midnight : St. Petersburg and the rise of modern Russia by W. Bruce Lincoln( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 1,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Russians, St. Petersburg has embodied power, heroism, and fortitude. It has encompassed all the things that the Russians are and that they hope to become. Opulence and artistic brilliance blended with images of suffering on a monumental scale make up the historic persona of the late W. Bruce Lincoln's lavish "biography" of this mysterious, complex city. Climate and comfort were not what Tsar Peter the Great had in mind when, in the spring of 1703, he decided to build a new capital in the muddy marshes of the Neva River delta. Located 500 miles below the Arctic Circle, this area, with its foul weather, bad water, and sodden soil, was so unattractive that only a handful of Finnish fisherman had ever settled there. Bathed in sunlight at midnight in the summer, it brooded in darkness at noon in the winter, and its canals froze solid at least five months out of every year. Yet to the Tsar, the place he named Sankt Pieter Burkh had the makings of a "paradise." His vision was soon borne out: though St. Petersburg was closer to London, Paris, and Vienna than to Russia's far-off eastern lands, it quickly became the political, cultural, and economic center of an empire that stretched across more than a dozen time zones and over three continents. In this book, revolutionaries and laborers brush shoulders with tsars, and builders, soldiers, and statesmen share pride of place with poets. For only the entire historical experience of this magnificent and mysterious city can reveal the wealth of human and natural forces that shaped the modern history of it and the nation it represents

Between heaven and hell : the story of a thousand years of artistic life in Russia by W. Bruce Lincoln( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on the artists in context, Between Heaven and Hell brings the triumph and tragedy of the Russian experience into full view. It vividly illustrates the workings of the creative process in a land in which politics and the arts have been closely intertwined. And it keenly describes the unique fashion in which Russian artists created their work through assimilating and transforming other cultural forms - giving birth to masterpieces unlike any others on earth
The great reforms : autocracy, bureaucracy, and the politics of change in Imperial Russia by W. Bruce Lincoln( Book )

10 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Great Reforms of the 1860s marked the broadest attempt at social and economic renovation to occur in Russia between the death of Peter the Great in 1725 and the Revolution of 1905. In just more than a decade, imperial reform acts freed Russia's serfs, restructured her courts, established institutions of local self-government in parts of the empire, altered the constraints that censorship imposed on the press, and transformed Russia's vast serf armed forces into a citizen army in which men from all classes bore equal responsibility for military service. This invaluable study explains why the legislation assumed the shape that it did and estimates what the Great Reforms ultimately accomplished. The Great Reforms offered readers a vital starting point from which to evaluate the prospects for glasnost', perestroika, and reform in the Gorbachev era
