A pioneering and powerfully argued reevaluation of Russia's military and diplomatic strategy from the 17th century to the reign of Nicholas I, this book argues that Russia took an offensive approach in the creation of its empire. It also examines the economic foundation of Russian's military power and the development of an imperial ideology.

Rather than viewing Russia as peripheral to European Great Power politics, LeDonne makes a powerful case for Russia as an expansionist, militaristic, and authoritarian regime that challenged the great states and empires of its time.
