About this book

Despite reports of exile proving disastrous to the region, 300,000 Russian subjects, from political dissidents to the elderly and mentally disabled, were deported to Siberia from 1823-61. Their stories of physical and psychological suffering, heroism and personal resurrection, are recounted in this compelling history of tsarist Siberian exile.

Reviews

'Andrew Gentes' emerging history of Siberia is a major contribution to the study of Eurasia.' - Abbott Gleason, Brown University, USA

'Gentes employs a distinction between sovereign power and governmentality to explore the Russian system of Siberian exile in the decades preceding the Great Reforms. Treating exile and resettlement as mechanisms of labour mobilization and societal purification, he delivers a harsh and convincing critique of tsarist administration. Readable and carefully researched, his book will be welcomed by historians of serfdom, judicial institutions, penology, state and empire building, and thanks to the treatment of political exiles such as the Decembrists, Polish rebels, and Petrashevtsy, by students of Russian opposition movements.' - Elise Kimerling Wirtschafter, California State Polytechnic University, USA
