Children of Rus'

This chapter charts the rapid ascent of the southwest's Russian nationalists between 1907 and 1911, showing how they engaged educated society across the empire in a discussion about the characteristics, needs, and prospects of the Russian nation. With the influence of their political rivals limited due to the initiatives set forth by the so-called Stolypin coup, the southwest's “true Russians” rapidly enhanced their profile in the right bank, where they now claimed the support of many Orthodox believers, from landowners to urban professionals to peasants and workers. The chapter also considers the unintended costs of their accomplishments, examining how they unwittingly undermined the stability of the empire.

Keywords:   Russian nationalists, Stolypin coup, educated society, true Russians, Russian nationalists' accomplishments, nationalizing the empire
