I have been continuing on in my research on the reforms of Catherine the Great and have been highly successful in finding information on them. I am extremely fascinated by the reforms that she introduced during nher reign and the influencs that help bring about these reforms. For my essay, I am thinking of concentrating on the three main areas where she introduced reforms: economic, social and political. I will then go on to talk about what these reforms did and show how you can see her influences throug the reforms. I have also tried researching the people that influenced Catherin, namely Voltaire and Rousseau. I have found it quite easy to find information on Voltaire but much harder to find any on Rousseau.
