This book is a social and economic history of the foreign settlers who emigrated to the Volga region in Russia in the eighteenth century. Concentrating on the years 1860-1917, a period of rapid change in Russia, it is at once a detailed look at life in the lower Volga valley and a vital chapter in the history of the Russian Empire.

  • James W. Long's book shatters the prevailing view of the Volga Germans in Russia, showing them not untouched by time but remarkably adaptable to ever-changing circumstances.
