2012-11-30 by

Curtis Murphy teaches in the History Department at UAA. In this talk he shares a new way to understand political developments and the role of government from 1700-1900 in Eastern Europe by looking at the vibrant tradition of local self government.

Currently he is working on a book that discusses the conflict between the Enlightenment Era centralization policies and the dynamics of urban self government in Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania and Russia.

This event was recorded at the UAA Campus Bookstore on Nov. 26, 2012.
