Summary
"Addresses the legal and symbolic features of monarchical rule in Russia ... to show how representation and a culture of representation affected the practices and fate of the Russian monarchy. The articles ... deal with specific issues such as the development of Russian law and legal institutions, the narratives and imagery of the dynasty, and the relation of the monarchy to concepts of the Russian nation and empire. In this context, they trace the evolution of imperial and national myths, the invention of tradition in Russia, the changing roles of St. Petersburg and Moscow as symbolic capitals, the efforts to integrate nationalities into a nation state, and the principle of territorial integrity in the lexicon of rule."--Back cover
