Seen both as an historical survey of Russia's expansion during the Imperial Period (1700 1917) and a geopolitical interpretation of its motive and goals, this book also analyzes the policies to contain that expansion on a global scale. It postulates the existence of a permanent geopolitical framework called the Heartland within which a Russian core area fought for hegemony with four surrounding core areas Sweden, Poland, Turkey, and Persia. Ranging from the French Revolution to World War I, LeDonne's book offers the most successful explanation as to how, despite reversals and limitations, Russia succeeded in becoming the world's largest contiguous land empire in European history.
