Publisher's Comments

Brumfield (Germanic and Slavic studies, Tulane U., US), Anan'ich (Institute of Russian History, Russian Academy of Science, Russia), and Petrov (contemporary history, Russian Academy of Sciences) identify the concept of "commerce and culture" as comprising the business milieu itself as a social and cultural phenomenon and the impact of entrepreneurs on the form of the city, especially with regard to commercial architecture. They present 12 papers that explore such issues in the cities of St. Petersburg, Moscow, Odessa, and Nizhnii Novgorod during the final years of the Russian Empire, as part of collaborative project between Russian and American historians.
