«Paul Werth makes a compelling argument...In a series of concise and well-written sketches, he demonstrates the breadth and depth of his familiarity with the secondary literature and his great skill at integrating these in a thoughtful, proactive manner.»

ABBY M. SCHRADER, Franklin & Marshall College, Lancaster, English Historical Review

«...succeeds in showing both how the year's disparate events were connected and how, in their totality, they represent a milestone in Russian history... This is a fascinating and highly readable book.»

Alexander M. Martin, Canadian-American Slavic Studies

«With admirable concision and insight, Werth investigates eight novelties of the 1830s across the worlds of culture, politics, religion and industry. Taken together, he suggests, these changes add up to "Russia's quiet revolution"... [a] provocative book.»

Douglas Smith, Times Literary Supplement

«Werth combines solid historical research with a lively and occasionally playful style that makes his book an entertaining read.»

Maria Lipman, Foreign Affairs

«Reflecting the accumulated wisdom of decades of historical research and writing, this highly readable history reimagines Imperial Russian history in a new and creative way. While focusing on a particular year, it is broad in its coverage, providing a superb introduction to the nineteenth century Russian Empire for experts, students and non-experts alike.»

Andrew Jenks, Professor of History, California State University, Long Beach

«This book on the year that heralded Russia's entry into the modern age covers an astonishing breadth of fascinating subjects and is pure pleasure to read.»

Laurie Manchester, author of Holy Fathers, Secular Sons: Clergy, Intelligentsia and the Modern Self

«With a winning combination of deep erudition and wry humour, Paul Werth takes us on a vivid and compelling tour of the year 1837. His book makes any number of unexpected and illuminating connections. It will surely do much to shift our perspective on this historical moment, and on modern Russian history as a whole.»

Stephen Lovell, King's College London

«[T]he book displays the author's dazzling erudition in various areas of Russian history.... [A]n important, original, and bold study that enriches our understanding of nineteenth-century Russian history and culture.... Werth manages to maintain a fine balance between scholarly rigor and riveting story telling, making his study attractive to a variety of audiences.... This rich and thought-provoking study will certainly not disappoint its readers.»

Valeria Sobol, University of Illinois, Ab Imperio
