The abolition of serfdom in Russia 1762-1907.

Moon, D. (2001) 'The abolition of serfdom in Russia 1762-1907.', Harlow: Longman. Seminar studies in history.


In February 1861 Tsar Alexander II issued the statutes abolishing the institution of serfdom in Russia. Drawing on recent research by Russian and Western historians, David Moon provides an up-to-date interpretation of this major development in Russian history. Abolition is presented as a process rather than an 'event', and both its origins in 1762 and its culmination in 1907 are examined. Engaging and accessible, the text is supported by a document selection from sources previously unavailable in English translation, a glossary, chronology, and a guide to further reading.
