Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 134920899X, Paperback)In the 18th century, Peter the Great's newly-created Russian Empire consolidated its position as one of the European Great Powers, and became part of the community of European thought and culture. This collection of essays honouring Isabel de Madariaga's distinguished contribution to the study of Russia in the period examines important aspects both of the internal development of Russia in the age of the Enlightenment and of the relationship with the rest of Europe. Topics include international relations, legal theory, public philanthropy, the peasant question, developments in language and in social thought, the role of the writer and that of the favourites, the treatment of the schismatic Olfi Belief. The volume is broadly conceived, to present the wider picture as well as embodying original research.
