Abstract

Book description: This volume presents the lives of mobile elites and their impact on the processes of change in the Russian and Austro-Hungarian empires during the second half of the 19th century. Using the notion of "imperial biographies," it illuminates connections between individual life stories and the course of empire, giving due attention to personal interpretations of experience in different multi-ethnic contexts.
