Historical cities of Yakutia (XVIII - IX) (to the methodology of the issue)


P.P. Petrov


     The article highlights the role of administrative influence on the establishing of a special network of settlements - "poorly populated" urban settlements in Yakutia. The author believes that the existence of "poorly populated" cities can be considered as a unique phenomenon in the history of Russian urban science requiring special study.

Keywords: regional urban environment, "poorly populated" city, bourgeois reforms, government bodies.
