This is an important book. In a richly documented monograph, Friesen contributes to an evolving scholarly reassessment of provincial life in imperial Russia. Against the longstanding consensus of a countryside mired in stagnation, Friesen describes the economic dynamism and demographic growth of New Russia (today, southern Ukraine) in the 19th century.—P.

Jacket: Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, by Julie Sedivy, from Harvard University Press

Lost in Translation: Reclaiming Lost Language

In Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, Julie Sedivy sets out to understand the science of language loss and the potential for renewal. Sedivy takes on the psychological and social world of multilingualism, exploring the human brain’s capacity to learn—and forget—languages at various stages of life. She argues that the struggle to remain connected to an ancestral language and culture is a site of common ground: people from all backgrounds can recognize the crucial role of language in forming a sense of self.
