Peter the Great and the West : new perspectives

edited by Lindsey Hughes

In this work, international experts mark the anniversary of Peter I's visit to England in 1698. They explore British-Russian relations - Peter in England, Russian apprentices, British ships and maritime technology in Peter's navy forest surveys, British views of Russia, Scottish influences - and widen the focus to look at the Baltic question, the motives behind the founding of St Petersburg, and the 1695-6 Azov campaigns. From the glimpse of Russian court life through private letters, protraits of Peter and a description of Catherine I's household to over-views of Peter's reforms and their impact: this volume offers insights into the relationship between Russia and Europe as well as Peter's personality, legacy and relevance for Russia today.
