Honors College Professor Publishes Book About Terrorism in 1870s Russia Richard Gordon
Christopher Ely, Ph.D., associate professor of history, Wilkes Honors College, has written Underground Petersburg: Radical Populism, Urban Space, and the Tactics of Subversion in Reform-Era Russia. The book, to be published October 30, argues that the most powerful weapon of populist terrorism was the revolutionary underground it created. This underground in the heart of the Russian capital enabled radical populists to carry out a campaign of violent terror that culminated in the assassination of Tsar Alexander II, establishing a model of revolutionary violence that has been emulated globally ever since. Ely has also just served as guest editor of Russian Studies in History: Urban Space (vol. 55, no. 2). Dr. Ely specializes in the history of imperial Russia during the nineteenth century.
