Imperial Russia, 1689-1917. Volume 2 of Cambridge History of Russia by ProQuest


The next section contains a set of mainly quite authoritative and insightful articles on foreign policy and the armed forces, including chronological chapters on policy development, an analytical history of the reasons for military success and failure, and more focused studies of the motivations driving Peter the Great's wars and of the navy in the years leading to the disaster of the Russo-Japanese war.\n Lieven also gives weight to the importance of taking better account of such "crucial but unfashionable" topics as economics, finance, the military, and foreign policy, which are, indeed, exceptionally well covered here.
