Rasputin: The Last Word
Radzinsky, Edvard
Book Number: 40765
ISBN: 1865081930
Allen & Unwin 2000 8vo hardcover 524pp index, b/w illus. very good+. / Good+ d/w creased on top edge with smal tears at top of spine. Grigory Efimovich Rasputin, Russian peasant, monk and mystic, exercised extraordinary and malign power over the last Tsar and Tsarina of Russia and their haemophiliac son. His drunkenness, sexual excesses and nepotism - not to mention rumours that he was a German agent - led to his murder by a group of noblemen in December 1916. Mad monk or mystic, sham or shaman, few figures from contemporary history have captured the imagination like Rasputin. The enormous influence that this half-literate priest exerted over Tsarina Alexandra is one of history's great enigmas; one which the author of this text sets out to unravel. Edvard Radzinsky gained access to a range of hitherto undiscovered material, in particular the proceedings of a Russian government investigation in 1917 which includes a wealth of interviews with people who had dealings with Rasputin. His murder is described from a new angel, re-examining the various conspiracy theories and describing the moments leading up to the murder against the backdrop of pre-Revolution Bacchanalia in the imperial city. nnAbout the AuthornEdvard Radzinsky, is after Chekhov, Russia's most frequently staged playwright, and his plays have won him international acclaim. A trained historian, Radzinsky spent twenty-five years on research and writing his life of Nicholas II, THE LAST TSAR, which was an international bestseller. His most recent book is a life of Stalin. He is also known in Russia for his work in television, having twice won the TEFI award, most recently for his series on Napoleon.
