About the Author

Malte Rolf iis professor of history at the University of Bamberg, Germany. He is the recipient of the Klaus Mehnert Award from the German Society for East European Studies, the 2008 Geisteswissenschaften Award, and the University of Tubingen's Doctoral Th


"Poland was to the Russian empire what India was to the British: prosperous, densely populated, ethnically and religiously diverse, and keenly aware of its own distinct identity. But what should have been a jewel in its crown turned out to be a thorn in St. Petersburg's side. Malte Rolf's deeply researched and fluidly written study makes admirably clear why Poland was so hard to fit into the jigsaw puzzle that was the Russian empire." --Michael Khodarkovsky, Loyola University Chicago, author of Russia's Steppe Frontier: The Making of a Colonial Empire, 1500-1800

"The publication of Cynthia Khlor's English-language translation of Malte Rolf's sophisticated and deeply researched study of late imperial Russian rule in the Polish Kingdom brings this important work to a wider readership. Fully conversant with the new imperial history and employing a situational approach, Rolf demonstrates how the complex encounters and communications in this key peripheral region shaped the imperial state and contributed to its disintegration." --Robert Blobaum, West Virginia University, author of Rewolucja. Russian Poland, 1904-1907
