For many decades, Russia was isolated from other part of the world politically and geographically. During the First World War, Russia’s industrialization was progressing fairly, as they implemented an education reform program to promote literacy among people. The program would have been successful if it was continued without obstacles. They also implemented a program named Stolypin in order to modernize the agriculture, which was bringing successful changes to the country; however, the Stolypin program was not completed because of problems such as War, the absent of a proper parliament institutions ,the corruption and excess of power among the secret police. Ethnicity in Russia groups was also among the problems as the Russian empire was becoming anarchical and it was getting difficult to maintain it due to pressure form the population who felt that their basic need were not being responded while the monarchy was having an extravagant lifestyle (Kennan,1). By 1917, most Russian were now convinced about the fact that Czar Nicholas II was not good enough to help revive the economy in Russia. Also, Corruption in the government was still untouched and the king had already dissolved the Duma because they did not agree to his will. The economy was still backward, without jobs, frustrated people were tired of the conditions that they lived
In 1917 the Russian Empire plunged. Not long after, Chechnya’s declaration for independence failed, they
In this article Ostrowski discusses the nature of the Tsar’s power in collaboration with other Russian institutions including the boyars and church in the 16th and 17th century. Ostrowski attempts to refute the traditional use of a absolutist or autocratic framework by historians when studying Russia by proving a level of collaboration or exchange between the Tsar and the elite. This article is a helpful addition to this research paper as it will help develop my analysis of the way Orthodox Russian’s viewed and interacted with their
In this text Phillip Barbour examines the life and death of the First False Tsar Dmitri in an attempt to find his true identity. Barbour uses extensive primary sources to describe the events of Tsar Dmitri’s life, both from Russian and non-Russian sources. While Barbour is not able to conclusively identify Dmitri’s true identity he does provide a comprehensive understanding of his life. While Barbour tends to rely on outdated historiography, this text will be a good source for a general understanding of how Dmitri gained and lost power and the social, political, and cultural mechanism behind his
The last Tsar Nicholas II ascended the throne in 1894 and was faced with a country that was trying to free itself from its autocratic regime. The serfs had recently been emancipated, the industry and economy was just starting to develop and opposition to the Tsar was building up. Russia was still behind Europe in terms of the political regime, the social conditions and the economy. Nicholas II who was a weak and very influenced by his mother and his wife had to deal with Russia’s troubles during his reign. In order to ascertain how successfully Russia dealt with its problems by 1914, this essay will examine the October Manifesto and the split of the opposition, how the Tsar became more reactionary after the 1905 revolution, Stolypin’s
Microeconomics involves supply and demand in an individual market, individual consumer behavior, and externalities arising from production and consumption; while, macroeconomics involves monetary/fiscal policy, reason for inflation and unemployment, and international trade/ globalization.
During Russia’s transition to communism in the early 20th century, conflict and unease permeated every part of life. Nothing was stable and very little of what the Bolsheviks had fought for had come to fruition by the time the USSR disbanded in 1991. The “classless society”, which was to work together for the prosperity of everyone, never became a reality. In the end, the majority of Russia’s 20th century was an utter failure on a grand scale. However, there were many amazing products of the system do to the great importance of education in Russian culture. Priceless novels were written, timeless movies were made, and great scientific endeavors were realized despite the rigid control placed upon Russian persons by the government. In
Throughout Russian history, particularly the period after its full exposure to western civilization, people have debated the countries past, present, and future role in the world. This deliberation has taken place several times in the countries past, one of the most notable being in the 19th century. In the 1840s-1850s the Slavophile and Westernizer movements emerged in the Russian sphere. The Slavophiles, having developed their views along literary and academic lines, believed in a uniquely Russian development and future not influenced by the west. Westernizers, having been influenced by Russia’s previous ‘attempts’ to westernize, believed in development to European standards; they rejected traditionally Russian ideals such as feudalism, serfdom, and religious orthodoxy (Cite). It is from small salons, predominantly in Moscow, that these two intellectual movements clashed about the future development of Russia.
which The prototypical form of writing in Russia was from Kievan state, the first East Slav literary work called Primary Chronicle. It was the foundation narrative, which gives us the main mindscape of the Russian people, beginning from the Mongol invasion in 1237 till the German invasion in 1941. The pre requisite factor that was always haunting the minds of the Russian people was the sense for security from the murderous and terrifying assaults across the east to west open frontiers. This added to the prevailing need among Rus people to create the first Rus state. After establishing a successful state, people became aware to regulate their own affairs. They fixed their own authority and culture which made life safer and more prosperous.
In theory, this policy was introduced to unify all the “Non-Russians” and make them feel Russian, all it did, however, was make them feel alienated. Despite in the short term giving the autocracy greater dominance, which could be consider as one of the few successes of Russification, it weakened social cohesion.

In the beginning of “Five Articles,” Dostoevsky talks about how Russia remains an enigma to the western world, and how the European view of Russia is narrow, stereotypical, superficial and largely imaginary. Dostoevsky claims that for Europeans, Russians seem to be barbarians and Europeans at the same time and their identities remain ambiguous for the Europeans, sometimes even for themselves. But generally, the idea of Russians for Europeans is that Russians are inferior to other Europeans, are unfaltering in battles, but are not intelligent and mostly uneducated. But this idea comes from a detached way of observation even for those Europeans who spend time in Russia studying this country.
It is worth noting that from 1860 till 1914, Russia made very significant progress to become a modern state, catching up fast in the Western industrial world (large metallurgic plants in St. Petersburg, Moscow and in the Urals, coal extraction in Ukraine, Oil drilling in Bakou, production of cereals in the South-East, ...).
