Window on the East

National and Imperial Identities in Late Tsarist Russia
( Cornell, September 2001 )

Robert Geraci presents an exceptionally original account of both the politics and the lived experience of diversity in a society whose ethnic complexity has long been downplayed. For centuries, Russians have defined their country as both a multinational empire and a homogeneous nation-state in the making, and have alternately embraced and repudiated the East or Asia as fundamental to Russia’s identity.

Of Religion and Empire

Missions, Conversion, and Tolerance in Tsarist Russia
( Cornell, 2001 )

This book is the first to investigate the role of religious conversion in the long history of Russian state building. The editors' introduction and conclusion place the twelve original essays in broad historical context and suggest patterns in Russian attitudes toward religion that range from attempts to forge a homogeneous identity to tolerance of complexity and diversity.
