Круглый стол: Россия и Романовы

Анисимов Е. В., Козляков В. Н., Курукин И. В., Морозан В. В., Редин Д. А.

The topic of the round table discussion opening this issue of the “Ural Historical Vestnik” is the history of the Romanov’s dynasty which was reigning in Russia in the 17th — early 20th centuries. In commemoration of the jubilee — 400 years of the dynasty’s accession to power — the participants of the discussion voiced their opinions on the issues related to the understanding of the importance of this event. How topical for the contemporary Russian society is the “Romanov’s story”? How and to what extent the process of the historical development of the country was related to the acts of the ruling dynasty and was corrected in accordance with its goals and attitudes? Why the three hundred years period of the Romanov’s reign which was marked by a series of undoubted victories and a growth of the Russian infl uence on the global arena ended with a national collapse and the death of the royal family? Was the pattern of alternating reforms and counter-reforms cycles, which served as the undercurrent of the whole Romanov’s period, characteristic for Russia in general, and, if so, what was its meaning? These were the questions to which the leading history scholars specializing in the history of the Romanov’s Russia attempted to fi nd the answers.
