Dubrovin's work draws a picture of the conquest of the Caucasus by the Russians, their struggle with the local population and the times of the vicegerency. In detail are described not only the military events but also the way of life and customs of the mountain-tribes; their life before and after the bringing of Russian laws. The actions of the governors are brought out with especial care, and numerous portraits of the characters of the era of conquest are given. The events are taken up to the resignation of Ermolov and the appointment of Paskevich.
