About this product
- DescriptionThis collection of articles addresses the legal and symbolic features of monarchical rule in Russia, as presented in Scenarios of Power, to show how representation and a culture of representation affected practices and fate of Russian monarchy. The articles deal with specific issues such as the development of Russian law and legal institutions, the narratives and imagery of the dynasty, and the relation of the monarchy to concepts of the Russian nation and empire.
In this context, they trace the evolution of imperial and national myths, the invention of tradition in Russia, the changing roles of Petersburg and Moscow as symbolic capital, the efforts to integrate nationalities into a nation state, and the principle of territorial integrity in the lexicon of rule.
