    the Russians:
    Background of the origins of the Russian Empire:
    Alexander II, the Tsar of all the Russia's, was to become known as the 'Liberator Tsar'. Beginning in the 1860's, he introduced a series of reforms which transformed the Russian social system, but failed to establish a firm base for his government. These reforms would range from the emancipation of the serfs, to creating a more equitable judicial system and changes in the systems of education. However, it is often argued that these changes were 'too little, too late' and, after a number of attempts on his life, Alexander would be assassinated in 1881, without having accomplished his dream of modernizing Russia.
    ...
    After reviewing the notes/handouts and watching the dvd, 'Land of the Tsars', you should have a better understanding of why Alexander II thought it necessary to pursue his main reform of emancipating the serfs.
