Download Tsar And Cossack 1855-1914 by Robert H. McNeal PDF

By Robert H. McNeal

Исследование посвящено российской армии, казачеству, и их отношений с властью. Роберт МакНил, на основе изучения положения и военно-экономического статуса казаков с 1855 по 1914 гг. пришел к выводу, что уже к началу первой мировой войны казаки представляли собой только военную силу с неэффективно работающей экономикой и были анахронизмом, пережившим свою целесообразность для государства. По мере укрепления государственности и экспансии государства на приграничные территории у казачества не было иного выхода, как войти в государственный организм на условиях отбывания службы, сохранения с постепенным отмиранием некоторых былых вольностей или исчезнуть. Впоследствии казачество как сословие, казачьи войска как социально-экономический и военно-политический институты неизбежно должны были исчезнуть. Что и происходило в пореформенный период, а завершились эти процессы в годы гражданской войны и сталинской модернизации.
