Allan K. Wildman’s wide-ranging intellectual curiosity and lively personality influenced all who knew him. His interests ranged across workers, intellectuals, soldiers, and peasants, and across broad time periods. His students have built upon that to offer this collection of stimulating essays. The volume begins with a biographical sketch by two former colleagues and continues with eight essays by Wildman’s former students. They range from the military reforms of the mid-19th century to Polish revolutionaries in the early 20th century, from peasants in Viatka coping with revolutionary upheaval to ethnic and cultural tensions in Western Ukraine after annexation following World War II. They explore pre-revolutionary May Day symbolism, Komsomol youth in the building of the Moscow subway, and efforts to develop new Soviet attitudes toward hygiene and toward the roles of motherhood and fatherhood. Readers will find that in keeping with Wildman’s own works, these articles open new insights into Imperial Russian and Soviet history.

This book is Volume 4 of the  Allan K. Wildman Group Historical Series

This bibliography is intended for a broad audience in the humanities and social sciences. Included here are books and articles which in some way can be called travelers' accounts. Generally speaking, "traveler's accounts" are works written by eyewitnesses about their experiences or impressions in the Christian East. This category includes pilgrims' accounts, officers' memoirs, ambassadors' reports, scholars' monographs, newspaper articles, and travelers' observations, all of which demonstrate the breadth of Russian interests in and concern about the Christian East. The compilers were primarily interested in human institutions; consequently, works in the natural sciences, when no information about human inhabitants or institutions was provided, were excluded from the bibliography. Works which might be called tourist guides are omitted -- that is, works which contain descriptions of what is to be seen, rather than what someone has actually seen. The expression "Christian East" refers to those areas associated in Russian thinking with the origins of Christianity, Orthodox culture, and the geographic jurisdiction of the Eastern Patriarchates of Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, and Jerusalem. Geographically this included Greece, Anatolia, the Fertile Crescent, Palestine, Egypt, Abyssinia, Bulgaria, Albania, Serbia, Montenegro, and Romania. The chronological confines of the bibliography extend from 1106, the date of the earliest extant Russian journey (in this case, a pilgrimage) by the abbot Daniil, to 1914, the outbreak of the First World War. The entries give the date of the journey, the author's name, the title of the account, publication data, locational codes showing where the book or article can be found, and an annotation (which is in some cases quite extensive). The book consists of six divisions: a 50-page introduction (with listings of sources and location codes); accounts from the twelfth to the eighteenth century; accounts from the eighteenth century; accounts from the nineteenth century; accounts from the twentieth century to 1914; addenda; a glossary of terms, and a 90-page index. "...this impressive book will be an essential reference guide..." (Middle East Studies Association Bulletin) "The bibliography in question will make an indispensable research tool for all people interested in the history of Russia, Eastern Europe in general and the Near East till the beginnings of the First World War. The scope of the publication is a great deal wider than its title suggests..." (Jahrbuecher fuer Geschichte Osteuropas)

Nationalism has been a driving force in the still unfinished era of nation-building in East Central Europe. Conventionally traced to the late Enlightenment and the French Revolution, the rise of nationalism colored nineteenth-century understandings of democracy and provided fuel for aspirations to political independence. This volume brings together scholars from eight countries and focuses on nation-building and nationalism in East-Central Europe in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and is organized around the following themes: understandings of nation, understandings of nationalism, changes in nationalism, typologies of nationalism, the urban-rural cleavage, and the role played by intellectuals and other activists in the development of national movements.
