Can I recover Google Chrome bookmarks from a stolen laptop?

As part of a thesis project for my masters degree, I had bookmarked a bunch of pages in Google Chrome. My laptop was stolen yesterday -- is there any way to get those bookmarks back?

My laptop was taken yesterday in a home break-in. The machine itself was a junker -- battery didn't hold a charge, plastic case was broken around one hinge where I had dropped it, etc., so I'm not too sad.
However, I had several years worth of important bookmarks on it, including a huge folder of bookmarks assembled recently while working on my halfway-finished thesis. Searching askme and google itself was inconclusive, and I'll admit I don't quite understand how my google chrome account works or whether it is a separate thing from my gmail account. Is there any way to recover those bookmarks? Or is that data stored locally and now in some pawn shop?
