Вечный спор о Петре Великом: благо или зло для России?

Canadian-American Slavic Studies. 2013. № 47. С. 473-491.

This article is devoted to the evaluation of the first Russian Emperor, Peter I. According to the author, Russia became a European power thanks largely to his efforts. But, at the same time, we cannot reject other points of view about Peter I. Therefore, the author appears both as a "Westerner" who justifies and defends Peter and as a conservative patriot  who condemns Peter and his politics. Both views have their place because they reflect the complex and ambiguous role of Peter the Great in Russian history.
