Word and Image invokes and honors the scholarly contributions of Gary Marker. Twenty scholars from Russia, the United Kingdom, Italy, Ukraine and the United States examine some of the main themes of Marker’s scholarship on Russia—literacy, education, and printing; gender and politics; the importance of visual sources for historical study; and the intersections of religious and political discourse in Imperial Russia. A biography of Marker, a survey of his scholarship, and a list of his publications complete the volume.

The article deals with various historical narratives which can be used as a framework for the Russian-Polish relations during the long XIX century in contemporary historiography, first of all the Russian one. A special attention is paid to the Polish factor in the context of systematic elaboration of the history of Russian empire as well as the identities of the Russian-Polish frontier.
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. Im Fokus der Studien stehen dabei Symbolpolitiken, Kommunikations- und Erinnerungskulturen. Gleichzeitig wird gezeigt, inwiefern die russische/sowjetische Machtpolitik an ihre Grenzen stieß und welche Formen von Widerständigkeit sich herausbildeten.
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. In the facts, the political confrontation between tsarist power and liberal members of the Parliament did not make possible to engage the needed thorough reform of the structures and management practices of the Russian finances. This paper aims to clarify the stakes and reality of the changes as a result of the Revolution of 1905 and the formation of parliamentarism in the public finances development of the imperial Russia.
