Book Description

This psychologically penetrating revisionist account of the life and rule of Rusia's 18th-century Tsar-reformer develops an important theme - that is, what happens when the drive for "progress" is linked to an autocratic, expansionist impulse rather than to a larger goal of human emancipation? And, what has been the price of power - both for Peter and for Russia?

Table of Contents

This anthology focuses on the experiences of Americans whose lives have been strongly affected by the pursuit of equality in areas such as politcs, law, education and government. Each of the autobiographical essays gives voice to the writer's first personal experience of inequality.
