This crucial period in Russia´s history has, up until now, been neglected by historians, but here Brian L. Davies´s study provides an essential insight into the emergence of Russia as a great power. For nearly three centuries, Russia vied with the Crimean Khanate, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and the Ottoman Empire for mastery of Ukraine and the fertile steppes above the Black Sea, a region of great strategic and economic importance - arguably the pivot of Eurasia at the time. The long campaign for it took a great toll upon Russia´s population, economy and institutions, and repeatedly frustrated or redefined Russian military and diplomatic projects in the West. The struggle was every bit as important as Russia´s wars in northern and central Europe for driving the Russian state-building process, forcing military reform and shaping Russia´s visions of Empire.
