Nicholas and Alexandra: The Fall of the Romanov Dynasty (Modern Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the Modern Library’s new set of beautifully repackaged hardcover classics by Robert K. Massie—also available are Peter the Great and The Romanovs

In this commanding book, Robert K. Massie, prize-winning author of Catherine the Great, sweeps readers back to the extraordinary world of Imperial Russia to tell the story of the Romanovs’ lives: Nicholas’s political naïveté, Alexandra’s obsession with the corrupt mystic Rasputin, and little Alexis’s brave struggle with hemophilia. Against a lavish backdrop of luxury and intrigue, Massie unfolds a powerful drama of passion and history—the story of a doomed empire and the death-marked royals who watched it crumble.
