Aims and Scope
This volume summarizes the results of six expeditions (1994–2009) along the route followed by Humboldt during his travel in Russia in 1829. Virtually all of Humboldt’s major routes, from St. Petersburg to Siberia in the East and to the Caspian Sea in the South, have been retraced with the aim of studying his Russian journey from different viewpoints and placing it in the context of the economic, social, and cultural circumstances of the times.
