Alexander M. Martin

Oxford Studies in Modern European History

  • Fills an important gap in an understudied field
  • Offers a comparative perspective and helps readers understand how Russia fits into the wider European context
  • Provides historical context for analogous developments in post-communist Moscow by studying how Moscow was reconstructed and reimagined as a Western city in the 18th-19th century
  • Adopts a multi-disciplinary approach - political, cultural, social, historical - to illuminate a single topic
