Product description

Review

In this excellent book, Janet M Hartley. . .elegantly captures the essence of a place of extremes by describing its people, both the settlers and the settled, the free and the unfree. . .Hartley s beautifully chosen and told compendium of life stories down the centuries illuminates a region where, today, Asiatic faces are as numerous as Slavic ones, and believers are as likely to be Buddhist or shamanic as Christian a place that s still more full of human extremes than pretty much anywhere else, and all of them brought about by Russian rule. Vanora Bennett, "The Sunday Times"--Vanora Bennett"The Sunday Times" (07/20/2014)"

In settling us there, Hartley gives us a history of Russia from the perspective that most immediately captures a foreigner s imagination. Tom Payne, "The Daily Telegraph"--Tom Payne"The Daily Telegraph" (07/26/2014)"

'In this excellent book, Janet M Hartley. . . elegantly captures the essence of a place of extremes by describing its people, both the settlers and the settled, the free and the unfree. . .Hartley's beautifully chosen and told compendium of life stories down the centuries illuminates a region where, today, Asiatic faces are as numerous as Slavic ones, and believers are as likely to be Buddhist or shamanic as Christian -- a place that's still more full of human extremes than pretty much anywhere else, and all of them brought about by Russian rule.'--Vanora Bennett, The Sunday Times--Vanora Bennett"The Sunday Times" (07/20/2014)

'In her masterful study of Siberia's people...Hartley's skill lies in her ability to make historical events vivid and accessible.'--Will Nicoll, The Spectator--Will Nicoll"The Spectator" (08/16/2014)

'In this vivid, carefully researched and authoritative work, Janet Hartley blends overall survey with individual case studies - many drawn from local archives - to throw light on Siberia as a part of Russia, yet also as a distinct region with its own marked characteristics. It should become the standard work on its subject.' - Geoffrey Hosking, author of Russia and the Russians: From the Earliest Times to the Present

"Hartley brings an established social historian's sensibilities, style, and scholarly approach to Siberian history. While she does a deal with major political developments, she does not attempt to tell the reader everything about Siberian history."--Helen Hundley, Wichita State University--Helen Hundley "The Russian Review "

About the Author

Janet M. Hartley is professor of international history at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
