To answer this question the author analyses the nature of the revolutionary crisis in Russian traditional agrarian society and possibilities to overcome it by using different legal reform strategies. This bulk of social technologies was elaborated by Imperial administration in the period of Great Reforms and practically used at the beginning of XX-th Century in order to enforce agrarian transformation and to stop the Revolution in Russia. In the situation of unstable social balance, which is typical for all countries under modernization, danger of the revolutionary break was not fatal and could be avoided by skillful reformers. From this point of view the author makes representation of variable parameters of revolutionary conflict, analyses mistakes of liberal reformers and legal possibilities to overcome the revolutionary crisis of 1917.
Après la publication consacrée à la mobilisation financière pendant la Grande guerre (2015) et celle centrée sur le désordre des finances publiques en temps de guerre (2016), ce troisième volume entend se pencher sur l’appel à la fiscalité. L'ouvrage poursuit l'étude comparée du financement de la Grande Guerre par les différents pays belligérants. Le patriotisme financier, qui s'est manifesté lors des emprunts, s'est-il prolongé dans un consensus autour de l'impôt ou bien s'est-il conjugué avec des résistances, voire le développement de fraudes, face l'augmentation des contributions fiscales ? Dans ce volume, l'analyse comparative des effets de l'élévation de la fiscalité dans les pays européens nourrit la réflexion historique et permet de tracer là encore des similitudes et des différences parfois inattendues entre les territoires.
