Evaluation Of Peter The Great

Evaluation Of Peter The Great

Submitted by • June 29, 2019

The westernization of Russia, initiated and propagated by Peter the Great was successful because of the change in domestic, military, and foreign policies during his rule. Evaluating historical evidence and arguments presented by historians such as Derek Wilson, W. Lincoln, and Robert Massie, show the course of events that allowed Peter to bring western European culture into the Russian aristocracy. Contradictions have risen from historians such as Nicholas Turgenev who debate that western influences were moving into Russia from the natural flow of migration throughout Europe and Peter¿½s decisions as ruler inhibited Russia¿½s progress. I argue that Peter¿½s strong leadership abilities and first hand experience in Europe contributed to the process of Russian westernization and determined the western characteristics that Russia would adopt.
