Member book, Sablin, Ivan, The Rise and Fall of Russia's Far Eastern Republic, 1905–1922: Nationalisms, Imperialisms, and Regionalisms in and after the Russian Empire

Routledge has recently published my book in which I continue to explore the connections between Asian (Inner and East Asian) and Russian history. In my new book, I trace the emergance of the Far Eastern Republic - a post-imperial state on the territory of the former Russian Empire which had the Russians, Koreans, Buryat-Mongols, Ukrainians, Tatars, and Jews as its constituent nations - in 1920-1921 and its unification with Soviet Russia a year later.

Call for Panelists and Chair/Discussant: “Monarchies and Paths of Asian Modernities,” AAS-in-Asia, Bangkok, July 1-4, 2019

Over the past several decades, scholarship has challenged the traditional association between monarchies and pre-modern politics. Works by Takashi Fujitani and Maurizio Peleggi, for example, have explored some of the ways in which Asian monarchies responded to global changes and refashioned imperial authority for the modern era. This panel intends to build on these foundational works to explore the relationship between monarchies, imperial authority, and the development of modern nation-states in Asia.
