Russia kept Batum, Kars, and Ardahan and gained southern Bessarabia from Romania (thereby ensuring Romanian hostility). THE LEGACY OF THE TSARS 27 Aware that a frustrated and isolated Russia could go shopping for allies among Germany’s enemies, in the wake of the Congress of Berlin, Bismarck devised a plan whereby Russia could achieve some of its security objectives in the Black Sea in return for alignment with the German powers. Germany and Austria had formed an alliance in 1879, and Bismarck proceeded to revive the idea of the Three Emperors’ League (Dreikaiserbund).

Both sides idealized their models. 3 The debate over the extent of Russia’s “special mission,” and whether the Western experience was something to imitate or avoid, lasted for much of the nineteenth century. In the twentieth century, it resurfaced in arguments among Russian Marxists as the century opened, and in debates among post-Soviet Russian writers and politicians as it closed. With Russia’s weaknesses so sharply exposed in the Crimean War, Alexander II introduced a series of significant reforms, many of which seem designed to avoid the more radical changes urged by both Westernizers and Slavophiles.

With Russia’s weaknesses so sharply exposed in the Crimean War, Alexander II introduced a series of significant reforms, many of which seem designed to avoid the more radical changes urged by both Westernizers and Slavophiles. The most important of these was the emancipation of the serfs, proclaimed in February 1861. This was followed in the next few years by financial, educational, judicial, and administrative reforms, and by an edict to reduce censorship. The change in the legal status of the peasantry was slow to produce benefits in increased agricultural production, but the reforms did have a more noticeable impact in spurring railway construction and industrialization of the economy under state sponsorship.
