Description

In this fascinating study, Riasanovsky traces the development of the Petrine image through four periods of Russian history. Using examples drawn from Russian historical accounts, literature, and art, he demonstrates how this militaristic leader, founder of St. Petersburg, and tsar of all Russia from 1689 to 1725, has become the dominant cultural image of modern Russia.show more
