Detailed Description

In this essay, based on the author's inaugural lecture as Professor of Russian History at UCL SSEES, Professor Bartlett defines the Enlightened European phenomenon of rationalistic but often impractical and sometimes utopian project-making, and examines some of eighteenth-century Russia's monarchs and their policy-making favourites from this point of view. Professor Bartlett suggests that Russia's successes in the eighteenth century owed less to Imperial Enlightened project- and policy-making than to the Muscovite powers of autocracy and serfdom, but that all of these proved incapable of ensuring national and international prosperity in the longer term.
