Moon, D. (2001) 'The inventory reform and peasant unrest in right-bank Ukraine in 1847-48.', Slavonic and East European review., 79 (4). pp. 653-697.
In 1847-48, the Imperial Russian government attempted to address both the problem of the unreliable Roman Catholic Polish nobility of right-bank Ukraine and the question of the future of serfdom in the region. However, the implementation of compulsory estate inventories, which were intended to protect the largely Orthodox Ukrainian peasantry from being oppressed by their owners, served only to increase tensions. The reform provoked over three hundred peasant disturbances. This article analyses the disturbances and their aftermath on the basis of archival research in St Petersburg, Moscow and Kiev as well as published sources.
