Abstract

journal of world history, september 2005 and converting backward non-Christians; they opted for practices that maintained stability the best. "Resettlement" also entered several programs for dealing with contentious populations; at one point official policy promoted a Jewish agricultural settlement in New Russia, and following the Crimean War attempts were made to replace Muslim populations along the Ottoman borders with sympathetic Slavs. Although neither plan succeeded, they anticipated Stalinist policies of dealing with nationalist dissent.

Bringing their religion and their language with them, they served as cultural avant-garde, and because many of them were leaving precisely to escape the long arm of the autocracy, they brought an attitude that was often at odds with official nationalism. Although Sunderland ends his story before Russia became transformed into the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, it should be required reading
