Study of the Russian city in the 17th and 18th centuries. ABSTRACT: Revision of PhD dissertation for publication; research for additional chapter on city life in 18th century Russia. The dissertation explores the institutions of the Russian city in two critical periods of its history: 1) the Muscovite era, especially in the 17th century , when the basic charactestics of the medieval city received final expression in the law of the land; and 2) the 18th century when that medieval city order was severly tested by Russia's emergence as a full-fledged European power. Examines the political institutions, social structure, and economy of Russia's cities, paying particular attention to the effects of these institutional arrangements on the posad people, the urban commercial and manufacturing population. Fellow to spend major part of fellowship reading broadly in urban history and related disciplines to augment previous concentration on urban history of Russia.
