The Editors


Nikolai A. Gourof
King's College London

       Nikolai is a doctoral researcher in the Department of War Studies, King's College London, and a Fellow of the Sir Michael Howard Centre for the History of War. His primary field of interest and expertise is the history of military thought in early modern Europe and beyond. He is currently researching the nature of the interrelation between early modern military treatises and the strategic, operational and tactical practices of the era, with a particular focus on Habsburg Spain. He is seeking to re-assess the variety of pervasive and deeply-engrained assumptions which have shaped the historiography of early modern war and warfare, and which feed modernisation theories in related fields.
      Connected to the above are Nikolai's other research interests in Western and Russian military thought, in early modern tactics, strategy and international balance of power, in the tructure and evolution of the early modern state, and in the intellectual framework within which traditional ideological and behavioural themes survive and new trends and perceptions emerge and spread within Europe and beyond. The treatment of war and history in art, literature and cinema has been a lifelong fascination.
