Viktor Krieger's New Book On Russian-Germans
Viktor Krieger's book, Rein, Volga, Irtysh: Iz Istorii nemtsev Tsentral'noi Azii [From the History of the Germans in Central Asia] (Almaty, Kazakhstan: Daik-Press, 2006) is now out. It is a history of the Russian-Germans in Kazakhstan and Central Asia. You can go here to see the book's cover, table of contents and some links to sample chapters. I am very much looking forward to reading it in its entirety. For more information on Dr. Krieger's recent scholarship on the Russian-Germans you can go to his website. He has done a lot of very important research on little known aspects of the history of the Russian-Germans under both Tsarist and Soviet rule.
