5.0 out of 5 stars ideal for students, 20 Feb. 2003
By 
Kirsty (South Yorkshire, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Peter the Great (Lancaster Pamphlets) (Paperback)
like the rest of books in the lancaster phamplets series this book contained just enough information to get you through a level study but not too much that it goes over your head! each chapter gives just enough detail to cover all apects of his reign such as his obessesion with war and the internal reforms he implemented within Russia. this book also gives different historians views on his reign which gives you a very good idea of how people saw the reign. excellent for short burst readings which will hopefully get students for your studies, this book is also ideal for people with general interest in his reign. excellent book

4.0 out of 5 stars Stephen Lee's 'Peter the Great', 4 May 2009

This review is from: Peter the Great (Lancaster Pamphlets) (Paperback)
This is a very competent summary of the life and interpretations attached to the life of Peter the Great. It is intended for the A level student but it is also a good introduction for the general reader. As such it does not contain original material but relays the often contrasting views of others. Nothing wrong with that. I could have done with more quotations which would have made Peter himself a more vivid character. The maps are poor.

This review is from: Peter the Great (Lancaster Pamphlets) (Paperback)
I found this book extremely helpful. As a general reader in history I was surprised by the ease with which the book brings you into Peter's reign without requiring previous knowledge or hours of concentration. The references to other historians and the detailed historiography with techniqual details on the reign, especially the reforms, came in very handy when I later used this book for A Level coursework and its references were very accurate. A book appealing to those with no experience of historical literature whatsoever to those using it as a precursor to a degree module. Extremely useful and highly recommended
