"A Russian Merchant's Tale will change fundamentally the way we think about imperial Russian society." Daniel Kaiser, co-editor of Reinterpreting Russian History: Readings, 860-1860s. "David Ransel has teased out of a text largely made up of laconic references to obscure people and places a story that is compelling to read and sheds light on important aspects of imperial Russian social and cultural history... An impressively researched, beautifully constructed book." Alexander Martin, author of Romantics, Reformers, Reactionaries: Russian Conservative Politics in the Age of Alexander I
