The Revolution of 1905 forced the Russian autocracy to accept the convocation of the State Duma. After the Revolution's defeat, the Duma belonged to a new political system in which the Tsar conserved a very great power. The promulgation of the Law of March 8th 1906 imposed a significant restriction on the budgetary prerogatives of the Duma and allowed the Administration to maintain a real control over the financial field.

Der Band schließt an die aktuelle Imperiumsforschung an und widmet sich dem neuzeitlichen Russland bis in die Gegenwart. Aus kulturwissenschaftlicher Perspektive werden an prägnanten Beispielen Integrationsstrategien untersucht, die die Macht des russischen Imperiums an dessen labilen Peripherien und auf internationaler Ebene sichern sollten.
