Viewing the artefact as a unique means of facilitating behavioural change to realise social impact, this book goes beyond the current trend of applying design thinking to enhancing public services, and beyond the idea of the designer as a facilitator of localised social change. For .   This problem is crystallized in the conclusion to the book, as the authors return to one of the traditional historiographical questions of soslovie: the fraught, but as Confino points out, possibly nonsensical question of the relationship of Russia's soslovie to estates in the West.

This book looks at the many ways that soslovie could affect individual lives and have meaning, then traces the legislation and administration of soslovie from the early eighteenth centuryto the early twentieth century.

The result is a new image of soslovie as both a general and a very specific identity, and as one that had persistent meaning. The book ends with an examination of the way that a change in soslovie could affect not just an individual's biography, but the future of his or her entire family.

The result is a new image of soslovie as both a general and a very specific identity, and as one that had persistent meaning, for the Imperial statue, for local authorities, or for Manufacturer: Oxford University Press.

This chapter draws on petitions, memoirs, and laws to examine four different ways in which soslovie identity had meaning to individuals, societies, and the state.

It affected the obligations, such as taxes and military service, which individuals owed the state and their societies, and also the obligations that societies and the state owed them. It also shows how soslovie affected the economic. Social estates in the Russian Empire were denoted by the term soslovie (sosloviye), which approximately corresponds to the notion of the estate of the system of sosloviyes was a peculiar system of social groups in the history of the Russian Russian language the terms "сословие" and "состояние" (in the meaning of the civil/legal estate) were used.

And in the text of the book both soslovie and sostoianie are equated with “social estates.”16 One wonders, with regard to the nobility for instance, what kind of “social estate” was that in which were included the wealthy magnates who owned huge tracks of land and (before ) thousands of serfs, and, on the other hand, the poor.

Every subject of the Russian Empire had an official, legal place in society marked by his or her social estate, or soslovie. These sosloviia (noble, peasant, merchant, and many others) were usually inherited, and defined the rights, opportunities, and duties of those who possessed them.

They were also usually associated with membership in a specific geographically defined society in a. Every subject of the Russian Empire had an official, legal place in society marked by his or her social estate, or soslovie.

This book looks at the many ways that soslovie affected individual lives, and traces its legislation and administration from the early eighteenth through to the early twentieth century. 4 However, the discussion has still revolved around the same class/soslovie opposition, although, as Confino pointed out, both concepts are too vague and have too many limitations to be regarded.

This paper explores the ‘universalistic’ turn of Cossack particularism in early twentieth century Kuban' from soslovie to investigates the growing tension between the particularism of the Cossack caste and the increasingly universalistic setting of modern Russia, a setting that reduced the Kuban' Cossackdom to an isolated anachronism.

This chapter explores the fate of the peasantry in Russia’s booming eighteenth-century economy. About half of the East Slavic peasants were enserfed to landlords; the other half, the “state peasants,” resided primarily at the northern borders.

Population mobility was constant in this century as the empire expanded into fertile southern lands, population grew markedly (not merely from. This essay seeks to reexamine the soslovie paradigm-first, by investigating the conception and development of the term soslovie and, second, by studying its 8 For typical statements of this conception, see Jerome Blum, The End of the Old Order in Europe (Princeton, N.J., ),"Russia," ,92; Leopold Haimson, "Conclusion.

In the empire’s last decades, then, soslovie might have mattered more to some but less to others. Of course, the task of any concise volume that addresses such a large and complex topic is to raise questions as well as to answer them.

Alison’s book does this well too. For one, what is at stake in identifying estates as social phenomena. While social mobility is inherently opposed to the rigid soslovie ideal, Kollmann argues, ‘it certainly mattered in day-to-day life’, while still ‘penetrable’ and potentially fluid (p.

As Freeze demonstrated bythe soslovie was an enterprise in the making from day one to the last day, plagued with multiple layers, as was any. Her study of soslovie provides much food for thought, and I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s comments over the coming days. It would take far too much space to enumerate all the things I liked about Alison’s approach to soslovie, and thankfully Alexander Martin has helped me by so concisely summarizing the book and its many merits.

The clerical estate (soslovie) of late Imperial Russia was legally segregated from the rest of the population, subject to separate systems of education, justice, taxation, and access to state permitted participation in free associations within the clerical soslovie in order to encourage the practice of mutual aid among clergymen and their families.

This book brings together contributions from various disciplines, written by scholars who are at the forefront of this debate. It provides multiple insights into a tripartite relationship: business, globalization and the common good. This chapter moves from the administration of soslovie to the roles that soslovie played in individual lives.

It begins with a discussion of four autobiographical narratives by men who changed their soslovie, looking at the role that change played in the longer story of their lives and the lives of their descendants.

It then moves to archival records from St. Petersburg and Moscow, and traces. The soslovie system-whether defined as legal, social, or cultural-psychological-was maturing, not dissolving, in the first half of the nineteenth century.
