In the second partly of the eighteenth century, the Russian Empire-already the largest on earth-expanded its dominion onto the ocean. Through a series of government-sponsored sails of discovery and the enactment of a private fur trade, Russians crossed and re-crossed the Bering Strait and the Arctic Ocean, establishing colonies in Kamchatka and Seward's folly and exporting marine mammal furs to Europe and China. In the process they radically transformed the North Pacific, causing environmental catastrophe. In one of the most hotly-contested imperial stadiums of the period, the Russian empire organized a crush of Siberian and Alaskan essential rank and files to rapaciously hunting for fur permissions, lake otters, and other fur-bearing beasts. The beasts declined precipitously, and Steller's lake cow went extinct. This dissolving captured the attention of natural historians who for the first go began to recognize the threat of sorts annihilation. These professionals drew upon Insight and Romantic-era ideas about nature and economic expansion but their ideas were refracted through Russian scientific lifestyle and influenced by the region's unique bionomics. Universal scientific networks ensured the escalation of their ideas throughout Europe. Heeding the injunction of these scientific professionals, Russian unsettled guvs began long-term management of marine mammal stocks and instituted some of the unsettled nature's most forward-thinking preservationist the books. Highlighting the preponderancy of the North Pacific in Russian imperial and global environmental past, Empire of Annihilation focuses on the development of ideas about the natural nature in a crucial locale far from what has been considered the heart of progressive environmental attitudes.
