“Though operating on very different scales -- from those of mass movements to those of individual walkers -- the essays here collected represent sustained attention to movement both as a practice and as a predicate for other practices (artistic circles, Cold War diplomacy, etc.). These essays will be of use to scholars of Russia and Eastern Europe while at the same time helping feed broader discussions within transnational discussions of mobility.”
— John Randolph, author of The House in the Garden: The Bakunin Family and the Romance of Russian Idealism
“Migration and Mobility in the Modern Age is a much welcomed and topical publication, as it eloquently examines the numerous forms of movement from and across Central, Eastern Europe and Russia from a historical perspective and within a transregional framework. The interdisciplinary and transnational character of the volume departs from single country studies and offers an invitation to discuss the region comparatively and bring mobility in dialogue with similar phenomena elsewhere. In this sense, as well as many others, it succeeds admirably.
