Product Details

Praise

“With verve, he describes the good-cop/bad-cop games played by imperial strategists: that mixture of light-touch suzerainty through local proxies, and occasional ruthlessness, which often let a handful of individuals hold sway over vast and scattered populations…The era of crowned despots who personify the divine will may be over, but the age of self-conscious imperial calculus is not.” –The Economist

“Historian Lieven (Russia Against Napoleon) delivers an erudite, globe-spanning study of “hereditary holders of supreme authority” and their systems of government…Lieven’s sharp wit and vast knowledge impress. This eloquent and entertaining chronicle casts world history in a new light.”Publishers Weekly
