A World of Empires : The Russian Voyage of the Frigate Pallada Hardback
Edyta Bojanowska uses Ivan Goncharov's gripping travelogue a bestseller in nineteenth-century Russia as a unique eyewitness account of empire in action.
Slow to be integrated into the standard narrative on European imperialism, Russia emerges here as an assertive empire eager to emulate European powers and determined to define Russia against them.
