Russian Embassies to the Georgian Kings, 1589-1605
46,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

By the early 16th century the loosely knit kingdom of Georgia had disintegrated from the strong monarchy of the middle ages to a number of small states and principalities. This internal disunity made the Georgians easy victims of the power politics of the neighbouring Ottoman and Safavid empires and by the end of the century the southward drive of the Russians intensified the struggle for military and diplomatic control over the whole of the Caucasian isthmus. As a result of this struggle 17 embassies were exchanged between the Russian tsars and the Georgian kings ruling in Kakheti during the years 1564-1605. Mr Allen and Mr Mango (who undertook the translation) have selected the documents relating to the embassies of 1589-90 and 1604-05. Although the writers seem to be frequently preoccupied with questions of protocol, their observations give a clear picture of both current Russian administrative and diplomatic practice and of the life and customs of the peoples of the Caucasus and Georgia. The texts are further enlivened by dramas such as the murder of the Kakhian king Alexander II and the secret negotiations for the marriages of the son and daughter of the Tsar Boris Godunov. The documents are of considerable geographical interest as they provide the earliest extant accounts of the crossing of the main chain of the Caucasus from north to south. Mr Allen provides both a detailed background introduction and full commentary and notes on the texts. Volume II also contains some valuable genealogical tables which clarify the complicated relationships between the Caucasian royal and princely families and their connection with the Russian, Ottoman and Persian ruling families. The main pagination is continuous with the previous volume (Second series 138). This is a new print-on-demand hardback edition of the volume first published in 1970.

Russia and the Making of Modern Greek Identity,...
85,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The birth of the Greek nation in 1830 was a pivotal event in modern European history and in the history of nation-building in general. As the first internationally recognized state to appear on the map of Europe since the French Revolution, independent Greece provided a model for other national movements to emulate. Throughout the process of nation formation in Greece, the Russian Empire played a critical part. Drawing upon a mass of previously fallow archival material, most notably from Russian embassies and consulates, this volume explores the role of Russia and the potent interaction of religion and politics in the making of modern Greek identity. It deals particularly with the role of Eastern Orthodoxy in the transformation of the collective identity of the Greeks from the Ottoman Orthodox millet into the new Hellenic-Christian imagined community. Lucien J. Frary provides the first comprehensive examination of Russian reactions to the establishment of the autocephalous Greek Church, the earliest of its kind in the Orthodox Balkans, and elucidates Russia's anger and disappointment during the Greek Constitutional Revolution of 1843, the leaders of which were Russophiles. Employing Russian newspapers and 'thick journals' of the era, Frary probes responses within Russian reading circles to the reforms and revolutions taking place in the Greek kingdom. More broadly, the volume explores the making of Russian foreign policy during the reign of Nicholas I (1825-55) and provides a distinctively transnational perspective on the formation of modern identity.

Problems of foreign SMEs in the Russian Market
53,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The book concentrates on the problems of SMEs in the Russian market by analyzing two different groups: a) Azeri companies, which are closer to the Russian mentality, more accustomed to the local business environment, and use less sophisticated technologies. b) German companies, which are not so close to the Russian society, have difficulty with adaptation, but have better technology, business strategies and offer higher quality products. We focus on these two groups of enterprises in order to get the full understanding of the business environment and reveal all the problems, which a company can face in the Russian market. To reach the aim interviews were conducted with the German and Azerbaijani entrepreneurs, representatives of embassies, Russian entrepreneurs, independent lawyers, and professors. At the same time analysis is supported by statistical indicators, market survey, business environment books, and recent articles about SMEs, the political and social situation in Russia.
