Comments Russia's Steppe Frontier: The Making of a Colonial Empire, 1500-1800

  • Bubba

    Khodarkovsky seeks to answer two central questions: 1) How did Moscow succeed in transforming the southern frontier into a part of the Russian Empire, and the steppe people into imperial subjects 2) What impact did the rapidly changing fortunes of various steppe confederations have on Russia--its ideologies, policies and institutions?The author maintains that Russian expansion (late 15th to the late 18th centuries) to the south and east was not haphazard, as often portrayed, but deliberate.

    A well-documented history of Russian colonial policies towards Turko-Mongol steppe 'ulus'-communities . Also provides detailed information regarding the Tsardom's southern expansion which the Russian History books generally ignore.

    Russia's Steppe Frontier is a compelling examination of the changing relationships between the expanding Russian Empire and the largely nomadic people who lived on the Eurasian steppe.

    This shows how Russia eventually conquered the steppe and the Caucasus by building lines of forts, using divide and conquer tactics both between nomadic tribes and within tribes. There were many ups and downs with different tsars placing different emphasis on conquering this area with eastward expansion. Russia was a European and Asian power simultaneously, each of which required different capabilities.

    The chapter about power dynamics between Russia, Poland-Lithuania, Ottoman Turkey and the Khanates in 16th century is very good, afterwards it is a bit of a drag.

    Sometime a bit dry to read, but still easy to read. Overal, a lots of information adequatly organized. Putin, what is he up too?


  • Grant

    Russia was as much a colonial society as any other European power in the 16th through 19th centuries, with the important difference that Russia's colonial frontier was contiguous, rather than overseas. Khodarkovsky makes an important contribution to the historiography by making the steppe peoples that faced Russian expansion as much a part of the story as the Russians themselves.
