Russian Officialdom: The Bureaucratization of Russian Society from the Seventeenth to the Twentieth Century


The purpose of these eleven scholars is to give the Russian official a distinct identity, to describe him in terms of the society from which he emerged, and to summarize the experience that rendered him ever more indispensable as the government became more complex. Quantitive data is skillfully integrated into the analysis of more than ten thousand official careers spanning some thirty decades, adding new theoretical and methodological dimensions to Russian historical studies.
