  1. 4 out of 5

    Just skimmed this book, as it seems quite dated a history, but learned a tad about Peter. For instance, he traveled to Holland incognito and worked in a shipyard for four months. And in his efforts to reform the Russian tax system, he really did end up with a tax on souls (persons), which is how Dead Souls came about. But I expect there are more contemporary treatments of Peter that are a better bet.

    If you have ever wondered how the typical Russian sees Peter the Great, then here is your chance. Kliuchevskii, a nineteenth century Russian historian, wrote a superb biography of Peter for his own multi-volume History of Russia. This book contains the scandals, romance, reforms, and travels of Peter, notwithstanding the author's own literary ability which even shows through in translation. When Vasilii Kliuchevskii retired, the students after his final lecture carried him out of the room.
