government orders in the late 1660s, when the tsar was much stronger. Similarly, B a r o n ' s emphasis on the government's fiscally motivated restrictions on Muscovite merchants as an explanation for their "backward" lack of Western-style entrepreneurship ("Entrepreneurs and Entrepreneurship in Sixtdenth/SeventeenthCentury Russia") is somewhat incongruent with his discussions of the merchants' role during the Time of Troubles, in which he describes the significance of their financial contributions for the reestablishment of poli6cal order ("The Gosti Revisited"). Those donations bought the merchants special privilege, but also recreated the system that, according to Baron, had prevented them from fulfilling their entrepreneurial potential. Such factors do not, however, detract from the overall value of this volume, which offers the reader a collection of carefully crafted studies that amplify our understanding. of commerce and cartography, of Western knowledge of Muscovy and Muscovites' reactions to the presence and influence of Western Europeans in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
