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

28 editions published between 1978 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,397 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 1,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

|a 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. The Conquest of a Continent brings to life entrepreneurs such as the Stroganovs and the Demidovs, founders of two great merchant dynasties that dominated Siberia at the time of Peter the Great. It tells of the great explorers like Bering, who led the Russians to Alaska in a voyage that ranks as one of the most trying in the annals of the eighteenth century. It tells how Siberia became a haven for trappers, Cossacks, and peasant settlers seeking a better life - but more dramatically, it also recounts the sufferings of millions of political exiles and convict laborers, an indelible story of human depravity that runs like a dark thread across the last four hundred years of Siberia's history. The conquest of Siberia was an undertaking that boggles the imagination. Just the building of the Trans-Siberian railroad is an epic without parallel. Although the Russians have exploited its natural wealth for centuries, Siberia remains virtually unknown to Europeans and Americans except as the land of Solzhenitsyn's "Gulag Archipelago," an ice-bound prison of forced labor and death. Most Westerners do not know that Siberia contains four rivers larger than the Mississippi or that a sixth of the world's gold and silver, a fifth of its platinum, a quarter of its timber, and a third of its iron and manganese lie within it. Nor do they know that modern Siberia contains cities the size of Dallas, New Orleans, Boston, Detroit, and Pittsburgh, or that it boasts some of the most fertile grain fields on the Eurasian continent. Using a rich array of sources never examined together before - major research collections in St. Petersburg and Moscow, as well as those in Paris, London, and the United States - Bruce Lincoln has written a superb chronicle of an extraordinary, mind-defying undertaking
Sunlight at midnight : St. Petersburg and the rise of modern Russia by W. Bruce Lincoln( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 1,131 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

The great reforms : autocracy, bureaucracy, and the politics of change in Imperial Russia by W. Bruce Lincoln( Book )

11 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 744 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
