Forum München mit Joshua A. Sanborn: Imperial Apocalypse: The Great War and the Destruction of the Russian Empire.

25.11.2014 (18:00 - 20:00)

Joshua Sanborn will be giving a lecture based on his recently published book, Imperial Apocalypse: The Great War and the Destruction of the Russian Empire. He will discuss the ways that military operations and martial law transformed social and political life in Russia, first in the borderlands and then in the empire as a whole. He suggests that the war produced a crisis of decolonization, complete with manifestations of state failure, social collapse, and, eventually, claims for national independence.
