In just more than a decade, imperial reform acts freed Russias serfs, restructured her courts, established institutions of local self-government in parts of the empire, altered the constraints that censorship imposed on the press, and transformed Russias vast serf armed forces into a citizen army in which men from all classes bore equal responsibility for military service.This invaluable study explains why the legislation assumed the shape that it did and estimates what the Great Reforms ultimately accomplished. The Great Reforms offered readers a vital starting point from which to evaluate the prospects for glasnost, perestroika, and reform in the Gorbachev era.
