The reign of Peter the Great (1682-1725), long regarded as the turning point in the Europeanization of Russia, witnessed the establishment of Russias first modern navy, the Azov Sea fleet. Its creation evokes a fundamental question about the era: was Peter a reformer or a revolutionary? This three-part study examines Russias maritime experience in the 17th and early 18th centuries in order to address this central question.

The author argues that Peters development of the navy was revolutionary in the scale and level of technology brought to fruition through the reform of existing political and social structures.
