Review quote

'It was Catherine the Great's formidable persona, plus an enquiring intellect ... that helped to drag Russia into the 18th century. Michael Streeter scotches some of the grosser rumours that surrounded her and retells, with assurance, the tale of that extraordinary woman.' -- Seven Sunday Telegraph
