"Thisbook examines the reasons for the Russian involvement in the Balkan penins ula and attempts to explain the connections that drew the Russian government into entanglements that were not only dangerous to its great power interests but contained emotional commitments that were difficult to control. Thewars, waged at a high human and economic cost, limited the resources that could be spent on internal development and, in particular when they ended in defeat, led to domestic unrest and, after 1856 and 1917, to drastic internal change." - from the preface.
