St. Petersburg, 1703-1825


St Petersburg reaches its tercentenary in 2003. The nine essays in the present collection touch on a variety of subjects from the crucially important first century and a quarter of its existence, beginning with its founding by Peter the Great in 1703, to the end of the reign of Alexander I, and culminating in the Decembrist Uprising of 14 December 1825. Written by leading, internationally acclaimed scholars and based on original archival research, the essays are presented in a clear and lively fashion that will appeal to specialists and general readers alike.
