Krausse, Alexis.



411 pages




Journalist and author Krausse (1859-1904) provided a historical background to the activities of the Russian government in Asia during his time. The first edition was published in 1899 by Harper and Row, and the second in 1900, when he could already predict the war with Japan that would break out in 1905. He covers Asiatic Russia, the absorption of Siberia, the conquest of the Khanates, the taking of Turkomania, the partition of Persia, Russian policy in Asia, the march on India, Russia in China, conquest by railway, Russia and England face to face, the theory of a buffer state, the secret of success, and the outlook. Appended are a chronology, the text of important treaties and other documents, and a bibliography. Reproduced from the 1900 edition.
