9780521038249: The Emergence of the Eastern Powers, 1756-1775 (Cambridge Studies in Early Modern History)

During the third quarter of the eighteenth century, the European states-system was transformed by the military rise of Prussia and Russia. Eastern Europe became pre-eminent and during the 1770s, Poland was partitioned for the first time by its three neighbors, and two--Russia and Austria--also seized territory from the Ottoman empire. Europe's political center of gravity moved sharply eastwards, and by the later 1770s Russia was emerging as the leading continental state. Based on sources in six countries, this study provides the first survey of these crucial events.

Review:

"...comprehensive..." Historian

"Scott's command of the literature is truly impressive, and the publishers are to be commended for putting the notes at the bottom of the page, saving the reader endless flipping back and forth." Slavic Review

"...this monograph makes important contributions to historical scholarship by its comprehensive analysis and examination of important developments and critical events in the second half of the eighteenth-century Europe." Canadian Journal of History
