Summary, etc.:
Peter the Great, by Robert Massie, restores to life a titanic historical figure, a maker of the modern world, who continues to hold great fascination for those living today. In so doing, it also brings alive the medieval Russia of Peter's birth and the very different Russia his energy, genius, and ruthlessness shaped, making vivid the texture of Russian life as lived by prince and peasant in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
Subject: Peter I, Emperor of Russia, 1672-1725.
