Journal of Slavic Military Studies

"The primary contribution of the book is its methodological critique of the existing historiography and its often silent presuppositions. The attempt top shape a more balanced image of the Russian empire and its interactions with ethnic minorities is commendable, especially these days, when history and politics are easily confused. In this connection Miller's recommendation to use a comparative approach that questions the prevalent image of Russia as unique is specifically pertinent."
