About the Authors
  • This is an English translation of important writings on the Thirty Years' War by the great Soviet historian B. F. Porshnev. Little is known of the Muscovite contribution to the conflict and Paul Dukes - arguably Britain's senior historian of ancien regime Russia - has selected the most valuable areas of Porshnev's unparalleled archival research to fill a crucial gap in the literature of the seventeenth century. In placing this work in the context of Porshnev's larger undertaking, Professor Dukes' substantial introduction assesses Porshnev's critics and evaluates his contribution to our understanding of the Thirty Years' War and of relations between Eastern and Western Europe at the time. A significant reinterpretation of a fascinating period, the book will interest both Russian specialists and those working more generally in seventeenth- century European history.

    • An English version of the most important writings on the Thirty Years' War by the great Soviet historian B. F. Porshnev
    • Significantly reinterprets the period by highlighting a neglected aspect of the conflict and its bearing on the birth of modern Europe
    • Edited and introduced by arguably the senior historian of ancien regime Russia in Britain
