Ivan the Terrible : first tsar of Russia by Isabel de Madariaga( Book )

26 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the definitive biography of Ivan the Terrible, setting the Tsar's infamous cruelty within the context of his time. Ivan IV, "the Terrible" (1533-1584), is one of the key figures in Russian history, yet he has remained among the most neglected. Notorious for pioneering a policy of unrestrained terror - and for killing his own son - he has been credited with establishing autocracy in Russia. This is the first attempt to write a biography of Ivan from birth to death, to study his policies, his marriages, his atrocities, and his disordered personality, and to link them as a coherent whole." "Isabel de Madariaga situates Ivan within the background of Russian political developments in the sixteenth century. And, with revealing comparisons with English, Spanish, and other European courts, she sets him within the international context of his time. The biography includes a new account of the role of astrology and magic at Ivan's court and provides fresh insights into his foreign policy. Facing up to problems of authenticity (much of Ivan's archive was destroyed by fire in 1626) and controversies which have paralyzed western scholarship, de Mad-ariaga seeks to present Russia as viewed from the Kremlin rather than from abroad and to comprehend the full tragedy of Ivan's reign."--Jacket

This is a collection of thirteen major essays on eighteenth-century Russia by one of the most distinguished Western historians.

This is a substantial contribution not just to the history of Russia, but to early modern Europe generally

10 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in German and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sie ging als Gebieterin über ein Reich, das ein Sechstel der Erde umspannte, in die Geschichte ein: Katharina II (1729-1796). Die große Zarin setzte der Rolle Schwedens als europäischer Großmacht ein Ende, begründete die russische Hegemonie am Schwarzen Meer und hielt Hof in St. Petersburg. Sie hat Russland in die politische und kulturelle Landschaft Europas integriert, gab >dem Körper, den Peter der Große geschaffen hatte, eine Seele<. Klug und gebildet, verbot sie die Folter, schrieb Stücke, korrespondierte mit Voltaire und Diderot. Aber sie erlag auch Irrtümern, beging politische Fehler und besaß eine >Neigung zur Lüsternheit, die sie zu Exzessen trieb<. Die Autorin fasst die Forschungsergebnisse der letzten Jahrzehnte zusammen und zeichnet ein Bild der Regentin, das durch Kenntnisreichtum, Einfühlungsvermögen, Detailfülle und Eleganz des Stils besticht
Catherine the Great by Paul Burgess( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A minor German princess with connections to Swedish royalty, the future Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia began as the handpicked bride of the future Czar. When he ascended the throne, Catherine plotted his overthrow, took power, and began to pull her country out of the dark ages. She led Russia for 30 years, creating an enviable dynasty build on cunning and ruthlessness, in addition to newfound notions of justice, progress, and a centralized government. Ahead of her time, Catherine the Great stands as a model for light in a time of great cultural and sociological darkness. In blending discussion of the facts by scholars, each presenting a particular slant on Catherine's life and conduct, with fictional recreations of pivotal events in her life, this film presents a well-rounded portrait of 18th Century Europe's most 'enlightened' despot
