Peter the Great (1672--1755), was one of the formative figures in the history of early modern Europe: under his leadership Russia emerged from semi-Asiatic isolation to become a great political and military power in her own right, and, for the first time, a principal actor on the European stage. In this well-known book, based on Russian sources throughout, M.S. Anderson examines Peter's career and its impact on Russia and the wider world, and assesses his complex personality as both Westernising visionary reformer and brutal autocrat. Originally published by Thames and Hudson in 1978, this substantially revised Second Edition appears under the Longman imprint for the first time.
