If this book seems to have departed from the proper ideal of historic narrative--if it is the history of a Power,
and not of a _People_--it is because the Russian people have had no history yet. There has been no evolution
of a Russian nation, but only of a vast governing system; and the words "Russian Empire" stand for a majestic
world-power in which the mass of its people have no part. A splendidly embroidered robe of Europeanism is
worn over a chaotic, undeveloped mass of semi-barbarism. The reasons for this incongruity--the natural
obstacles with which Russia has had to contend; the strange ethnic problems with which it has had to deal; its
triumphant entry into the family of great nations; and the circumstances leading to the disastrous conflict
recently concluded, and the changed conditions resulting from it--such is the story this book has tried to tell.
