Item Details

A compelling introduction to the topic, Russian Immigrants spans the period between 1820 and 1920—when more than 3 million Russians immigrated to America—to the present. Readers will learn how Russia evolved into a vast empire composed of hundreds of distinct ethnic and cultural groups and how this diversity became a major factor in Russian immigration due to state-sponsored repression on the basis of ethnicity, religion, culture, and politics. A look at Russian Americans today discusses significant contributions by both Russian-American workers and noted individuals including scientists, writers, thinkers, artists, and captains of industry. Numerous photographs and quotes from original source material round out this comprehensive reference. History covered includes: How Czar Alexander II s assassination triggered the first wave of immigration The contribution of Russia s serf system to early immigrant waves How the number of immigrants to Pennsylvania from Slavic countries between 1890 and 1900 almost doubled Russian immigrants participation in and contribution to the American Revolution and Civil Wars How later Russian immigrants were received in the United States World War II and the U.S. alliance with the Soviet Union A description of the cold war.
