About the Authors
  • This is an analytical account of a colorful period in Russian history, which is accessible to undergraduates of European and Russian history, as well as to the nonspecialist reader. Central to a discussion that emphasizes Russia's place in Europe are the much misunderstood personalities of some remarkable rulers, such as Peter the Great, Catherine the Great and Alexander I. Their reigns are set in the context of wider developments in social, economic, cultural and intellectual history that help to account for Russia's emergence as a great power.

    • Places Russia's 'long' eighteenth century squarely in its European context
    • Through thematic chapters examines political, social, cultural and intellectual life in this period, not limited purely to the politics of the time
    • While approach is thematic there is a useful chronological introduction explaining important events, changes etc, also some maps, a chronology and critical bibliography
