    John P. LeDonne(Author)
Eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European foreign policy was practised within geographical constraints and imperatives. By placing both Russian and its neighbours within this geographic context, LeDonne retells over 200 years of Russian Imperial history.

This is a book which will prove to be invaluable reference work for all those interested in the history of Austriaover the last century and a half./Tim Kirk University of Northumbria/EHR Juen 1999.His extremely compact text...The text is rich, and speaks with many voices: Sometimes it records individual motivation ("As early as 1774 or 1775, Potemkin conceived an 'eastern system.'")./Max J. Okenfuss, St. Louis./Jahrbucher fur Geschichte Osteuropas 47 (1999).John Ledonne's new work is a significant exception...This work is at once impressive, ambitious, stimulating./Hugh Ragsdale/Foreign Affairs, March-April 1999.LeDonne provides a clear and richly detailed account of Russia's international relations.../ This densely written book is a good guide to the detail of Russian foreign policy.../ Peter Waldron, University of Sunderland, The Historical Association, 1999.this is no ordinary diplomatic history. There is a good deal of detail about treaties, IdemarchesI and military matters as there has to be in any study of foreign affairs./ David N. Collins, Leeds University, Jrnl??
