Summary
An account of the events of Catherine's life and of the achievements of her reign. Topics include governmental, financial and administrative reforms and her foreign policy. Attention is paid to historical controversies over the interpretation of her policies and to the historiography on the period. There is no shortage of biographies of Catherine the Great, of varying quality and degrees of sensationalism. But there exists no brief account of her reign that incorporates the extensive research findings of the last twenty years and presents them accessibly, accurately, and concisely to the student and the general reader. Following her magisterial Russia in the Age of Catherine the Great, Isabel de Madariaga has written the most informative, balanced and up-to-date short study of this spectacular period in Russian history. De Madariaga establishes an authoritative account of the events of Catherine the Great's rule
