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

32 editions published between 1978 and 1989 in English and German and held by 1,455 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 )

23 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 1,293 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 1,089 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 blend with images of suffering on a monumental scale to make up the historic persona 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 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. 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 Russian'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 the city 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 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did a country with such a tormented past bring such stunning works of art into being? To answer this question, W. Bruce Lincoln explores ten centuries of artistic endeavor in a land uniquely suspended between East and West, past and future sacred and secular Surveying art in all its forms, Between Heaven and Hell tells the stories of Russia's greatest novelists, poets, painters, composers, dancers, architects, and filmmakers as they struggled to extract beauty from their nation's painful life, and shaped the masterpieces that the world now acclaims as purely and uniquely Russian
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 728 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

Coastal surveillance : final report by L. H Chen( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This final report gives an account of a one-year effort performed during FY79 under the Coastal Surveillance Project. The objective of the project was to define the operational and technical parameters and evaluate the performance of equipment which could be used for remote surveillance of harbors and near coastal shallow water areas. The effort consisted of two parts: Problem Definition and Hardware Evaluation. In Problem Definition, contacts were made with technical groups and Coast Guard field units to define applicable technology and Coast Guard needs. This led to the design of a prototype Coastal Surveillance System consisting of four elements: radar, sonobuoy, infrared devices and a radio scanner. In Hardware Evaluation, three devices were selected for test and evaluation: a modified Navy sonobuoy AN/SSQ-41, an Army night vision device AN/TAS-6 and a commercially available thermal imaging system (Pyroelectric Videcon Model 84). Testing of the sonobuoy system was conducted at three locations with different depth and bottom topography. Detection ranges of three different size target vessels at three different speeds were determined when the vessel proceeded toward the sonobuoy ('acquisition' range) and when it receded from the buoy ('loss' range). For initial planning estimates and feasibility studies, a detection range of 1500 yards is recommended for the sonobuoy. The AN/TAS-6 night vision device has good potential as a coastal surveillance device while the Pyroelectric Videcon was found to hold little promise for coastal surveillance use
