Abstract
In anglophone historiography the modernization in prepetrine Muscovy is considered as the result of the military reforms and the external influences. The sources of such effects were located in the West as well as in the East. The fundamental difference of the modernization process in Muscovy is explained by the eurasian context of Russian national history. Special attention is paid to natural, climatic and military development factors. The factor of "military revolution" has been recognized as an important aspect of the historical transformation of the state and society. It has identified the development of the fiscal-military state. Whereas the process of the new mili-tary technologies translation went out from Europe, the Ottoman Empire and the Golden Horde passed out the autocratic political model "of the Service State" and the concept of the fiscal poli-cy. These methods of modernization assisted to occurrence of regular State and society with high level of control and compulsion. In the estimates of foreign authors pre-Petrine reforms were ef-fective enough, but they have increased social and cultural gap between Europe and Russia.
