Ivan Sablin publishes new book

Oct 18, 2018

Dr. Ivan Sablin recently published his new boook The Rise and Fall of Russia's Far Eastern Republic, 1905–1922: Nationalisms, Imperialisms, and Regionalisms in and after the Russian Empire with Routledge. Ivan Sablin is an associate member of the HCTS and research group leader of the ERC project “Entangled Parliamentarisms.”

The book The Rise and Fall of Russia's Far Eastern Republic, 1905–1922 explores the region of the Russian Far East between Lake Baikal and the Pacific Ocean, including the territories annexed from the Qing Empire in 1858–1860, during the collapse of the Russian Empire and the formation of the Soviet Union.

The Russian Far East was a remarkably fluid region in the period leading up to, during, and after the Russian Revolution. The different contenders in play in the region, imagining and working toward alternative futures, comprised different national groups, including Russians, Buryat-Mongols, Koreans, and Ukrainians; different imperialist projects, including Japanese and American attempts to integrate the region into their political and economic spheres of influence as well as the legacies of Russian expansionism and Bolshevik efforts to export the revolution to Mongolia, Korea, China, and Japan; and various local regionalists, who aimed for independence or strong regional autonomy for distinct Siberian and Far Eastern communities and whose efforts culminated in the short-lived Far Eastern Republic of 1920–1922. The Rise and Fall of Russia’s Far Eastern Republic, 1905–1922 charts developments in the region, examines the interplay of the various forces, and explains how a Bolshevik version of state-centered nationalism prevailed.

Dr. Ivan Sablin is research group leader of the ERC project "Entangled Parliamentarisms: Constitutional Practices in Russia, Ukraine, China and Mongolia, 1905–2005," which is hosted by the Chair of East European History at Heidelberg University‘s Department of History. Sablin‘s research interests include the history of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, with special attention to Siberia and the Russian Far East, and global intellectual history. Sablin finished his PhD at the Cluster “Asia and Europe” in 2014 and is now also collaborating with the Heidelberg Centre for Transcultural Studies for his project.
