"A coherent, literate, and always informed comprehensive history of the region that presents the Russian Far East as both more vibrant and cosmopolitan than the conventional picture. . . . Stephan has produced that rarest of academic monographs: a consistently reliable synthesis that is fun to read. . . . It should be a standard English-language reference tool on the Russian Far East for years to come."

John J. Stephan is Professor of History at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He is the author of histories of Sakhalin and the Kurile Islands, among other books.


Based on a quarter-century of research by a leading authority on the area, this is a monumental survey from prehistoric times to the present. Drawing from political, diplomatic, economic, geographical, social, and cultural evidence, the book reveals that this vast, rugged, and supposedly insular land has harbored vibrantly cosmopolitan lifestyles.
