  • UC history professor Willard Sunderland publishes “The Baron’s Cloak,” with Cornell University Press, wherein he explores the collapse of the Russian Empire through the lens of a single man’s life: Baron Roman Feodorovich Von Ungern-Sternberg, a Baltic German aristocrat loyal to the Russian Empire, who served in the Russo-Japanese War and the First World War.
