Pressestimmen' ... a bold, ambitious attempt at an new interpretation of a key period in Russian history ... nobody will make the acquaintance of this pathfinding work without deriving not only the benefit offered by a large amount of pertinent information but also a healthy stimulus towards a deeper understanding of one of the most crucial processes in Russian history.' Europe - Asia Studies 'The author ... synthesizes a huge amount of recent scholarship in several languages with insight and wit ... this learned gem of a book should find many readers at all levels of sophistication.' The Russian Review ' ... an excellent analytical account of a colourful period in Russian history; and is accessible to undergraduates of European and Russian history, as well as to the more specialist reader.'
