About this book

In this thought-provoking book internationally renowned 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 a glimpse of Russian court life through private letters, portraits of Peter and a description of Catherine I's household to over-views of Peter's reforms and their impact: this timely volume offers new insights into the relationship between Russia and Europe as well as Peter's personality, legacy and relevance for Russia today.

Reviews

'What is new about this book is not so much the perspectives, but the sources which the authors bring to bear on the perennial questions associated with 'the rights and wrongs, successes and failures of the reign of Peter the Great.' - Russian Review
