About this Item

Title
Schools that Peter the Great Built: Projectors & the State in Early Modern Russia
Summary
Igor Fedyukin focused on his current research for a book which, among other points, refutes the received wisdom that Peter I single-handedly designed schools and other institutions and forced them on an unwilling Russian public. A greater role was played by the administrative entrepreneurs (or "projecteurs," as they were called) who pursued their own career goals and pet ideas, and competed for status and resources. Fedyukin examined the relative roles of individual initiative and the state, in the context of the Westernizing autocracy.
