Professor Long traces the lives of the Volga Germans by addressing the many aspects of their settlement in the Russian colonies, including their adaptation to new agricultural techniques, the growth of cottage industries, and the shifting ownership of parcels of land. The establishment of the zemstov institutions, which managed local affairs, served to foster new ideas, and by the 1890s had brought the settlers into contact with the outside world. The book handles a great deal of information in rather small print on 337 non-reflective pages.

From Privileged to Dispossessed is a social and economic history of the foreign settlers who emigrated to the Volga region in Russia in the eighteenth century. Concentrating on the years 1860 to 1917, a period of rapid change in Russia, it is at once a detailed look at life in the lower Volga valley and a vital chapter in the history of the multinational Russian Empire, assessing as it does the impact of national policy in the outlying provinces.

James W. Long's book shatters the prevailing view of the Volga Germans in Russia, showing them not untouched by time but remarkably adaptable to ever-changing circumstances. It reveals how numerous nineteenth-century government reforms and rapid economic development, and the subsequent restruc-turing of state and society, transformed their lives for good and ill. It also illustrates the striking continuity of a misguided nationality policy that alienated a loyal, productive minority group by means of rigorous Russification and expropriation of landholdings. From Privileged to Dispossessed makes extensive use of rare materials from major Soviet research libraries and of oral interviews with Volga German immigrants. The book will be of special interest not only to historians but to people of Volga German descent, whose ancestors had learned to survive in a foreign land a century before they came to the North American prairies in the 1870s.
