Comparing settlers and comparing indigenes: David Wrobel, ‘Considering Frontiers and Empires: George Kennan’s Siberia and the U.S. West’, The Western Historical Quarterly, 46, 3, 2015, pp. 285-309
Abstract: This article examines the late nineteenth-century writings of American explorer, travel writer, and journalist George Kennan on Siberian indigenous peoples, the region’s incarceration and exile system, and his early twentieth-century commentary on federal Indian policy. Kennan’s work highlights the possibilities for comparative analysis of the U.S. empire in the Far West and Russia’s far eastern empire.
