| A Century of Stocks and Bonds: The Secrets of Imperial Russia. Авторы:
The book is devoted to the history of Russian securities in the 18th-early 20th centuries, the time when the Russian stock market was taking shape in the Russian Empire. The Russian poet Alexander Block called the 19th century "the age of shares, rents and bonds". And he was right: during this period securities actually became part of the daily life of the majority of Russia's population. The present publication examines the history of the formation of the securities market from the first issues of government bonds at the turn of the 18th century to the year 1917, reveals its dynamics and structure, describes the corresponding legal base and state regulation, points to the main figures engaged in operations with securities (the State and private companies), shows the mechanism of emission and its participants (stock exchanges, brokers, etc.), and illustrates the distribution of Russian securities on European stock exchanges. Also, the book characterizes the most important issuers of pre-revolutionary Russia, such as railroad societies, commercial and mortgage banks, insurance companies, and commercial and industrial firms,which operated in the main branches of industry (extraction of gold and oil, metallurgy, textile and food production, transportation business, etc.). The book is intended for those who are interested in the history of Russia.
