📒De Romanovs ✍ Simon Montefiore
📝De Romanovs Book Synopsis : De bejubelde auteur van Stalins jeugdjaren en andere meeslepende biografieën heeft met De Romanovs een toegankelijke, levendige en zeer onthullende geschiedenis geschreven over de uitzonderlijke mannen en vrouwen die Rusland drie eeuwen regeerden. In dit fascinerende werk wendt Simon Sebag Montefiore zijn talent voor geschiedschrijving aan om het verhaal te vertellen van de grootste en meest complexe keizers en keizerinnen van de Romanov- dynastie (1613-1918), over hoe hun hof functio neerde, en over het evenwicht tussen persoonlijkheid en macht bij elke tsaar. Gebruikmakend van archiefmateriaal dat na de val van de USSR beschikbaar kwam, slaagt Montefiore erin de werkelijke wereld tot leven te brengen van legendarische persoonlijkheden als Catharina de Grote en Nicolaas II, en laat hij de lezer kennismaken met een aantal minder bekende, maar alleen al om hun seksuele uitspattingen en andere scandaleuze of decadente wederwaardigheden des te meer tot de verbeelding sprekende leden van deze eminente familie. Een lijvig boek over lusten en onlusten, intriges, samenzweringen, fascinerende karakters, politiek en macht. Een boek dat de diepere wortels van het huidige Rusland genadeloos blootlegt en dat van de eerste tot de laatste bladzij zowel duizelingwekkend informatief als extreem onderhoudend is.

📒In The Land Of The Romanovs ✍ Anthony Cross
📝In the Land of the Romanovs Book Synopsis : Over the course of more than three centuries of Romanov rule in Russia, foreign visitors and residents produced a vast corpus of literature conveying their experiences and impressions of the country. The product of years of painstaking research by one of the world’s foremost authorities on Anglo-Russian relations, In the Lands of the Romanovs is the realization of a major bibliographical project that records the details of over 1200 English-language accounts of the Russian Empire. Ranging chronologically from the accession of Mikhail Fedorovich in 1613 to the abdication of Nicholas II in 1917, this is the most comprehensive bibliography of first-hand accounts of Russia ever to be published. Far more than an inventory of accounts by travellers and tourists, Anthony Cross’s ambitious and wide-ranging work includes personal records of residence in or visits to Russia by writers ranging from diplomats to merchants, physicians to clergymen, gardeners to governesses, as well as by participants in the French invasion of 1812 and in the Crimean War of 1854-56. Providing full bibliographical details and concise but informative annotation for each entry, this substantial bibliography will be an invaluable tool for anyone with an interest in contacts between Russia and the West during the centuries of Romanov rule.
📒The Last Days Of The Romanovs ✍ George Gustav Telberg
📝The Last Days of the Romanovs Book Synopsis : THE LAST DAYS OF THE ROMANOVS BY GEORGE GUSTAV TELBERG PROFESSOR OF LAW IN SARATOV UNIVERSITY AND FORMER MINISTER OF JUSTICE OF THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT AT OMSK AND ROBERT WILTON SPECIAL RUSSIAN CORRESPONDENT FOR THE TIMES. LONDON ILLUSTRATED NEW XBir YORK HEORGE H, DORAN COMPANY PUBLISHERS NOTE During the night between the i6th and 17th of July, 1918, the former Russian Emperor Nicholas II, his family, as well as all the persons Attached to it, were murdered by the order of the Yekaterinburg oviet of workmens deputies. The news of this crime broke through the closed ring that surrounded Bolshe vist Russia aad spread over the entire world. At the end of July, 1918, the town of Yekaterin burg was taken from the Bolsheviks by the forces of the Siberian Government. Shortly after their occu pation of the district an investigation was ordered to be made of the circumstances attendant on the mur der. A judicial examination therefore took place of the witnesses connected with the life of the imperial family at Czarskoe-Selo, Tobolsk and Yekaterinburg by N. A. Sokoloff, the Investigating Magistrate for Cases of Special Importance of the Omsk Tribunal. Upon the fall of the Kolchak regime, copies of the depositions were taken from the archives by M. George Gustav Telberg, Professor of Law at the University of Saratov and Minister of Justice at Omsk, when he fled with the other ministers of the Omsk government. These combined statements re construct the life-story of the imperial family from the time of the emperors abdication until the murder PUBLISHERS NOTE of himself, his wife, his children, including the czare vitch, and their few faithful servants in IpatiefFs house at Yekaterinburg. Thetranslator has endeavored to preserve the orig inal simplicity, and in some cases the crudeness and lack of education apparent in the witnesses. Colonel Kobylinsky, M. Gilliard and Mr. Gibbes are edu cated men who apparently gave their evidence with out displaying any outward emotion, but, though they did not exaggerate the sufferings of thd imperial family, they were not eye-witnesses of the final hours of their captivity. The testimony of the soldiers strikes a more sin ister note. Two of them witnessed most of the daily happenings at IpatiefFs house, but they display cer tain evidences of pity and of having been well-dis posed towards the prisoners whose murder they condemned. Indeed these men are most insistent that the crime was committed by the Letts. The third soldier Medvedeff took an active part in the murder. The narrative of Mr. Robert Wilton which sup plements the translations of the official records is, we think, a document of incalculable value. Written by a man who for sixteen years was correspondent for the London Times in Russia, and who not only speaks Russian but was present throughout the inves tigation of the scene of the murder and during the search for the relies, his story has a poignancy and an intrinsic value that cannot be overestimated. vi PUBLISHERS NOTE It is proper here to explain to the reader that the contents of this volume as represented by the Official Depositions in Part I and Mr. Robert Wiltons Nar rative in Part II came into existence quite independ ently and without the design, originally, of publish ing them together. Mr. Wilton, who escaped from Siberia after the fall of the Kolchak Government, took with him one of three copies of the dossier ofthe official investigation. Upon this original source he based his story, adding to it certain facts which he had personally gathered. By a most fortunate circumstance, George H. Doran Company, who were preparing for the press the depositions secured by M. George Gustav Telburg, learned of Mr. Wiltons narrative, and arrangements were immediately made to combine the records in one volume. As the two parts of the book are from different sources, no effort has been made to secure uniformity in certain minor variations in the spellings of proper names...

📒The Many Deaths Of Tsar Nicholas Ii ✍ Wendy Slater
📝The Many Deaths of Tsar Nicholas II Book Synopsis : How did Nicholas II, Russia’s last Tsar, meet his death? Shot point blank in a bungled execution by radical Bolsheviks in the Urals, Nicholas and his family disappeared from history in the Soviet era. But in the 1970s, a local geologist and a crime fiction writer discovered the location of their clandestine mass grave, and secretly removed three skulls, before reburying them, afraid of the consequences of their find. Yet the history of Nicholas’ execution and the discovery of his remains are not the only stories connected with the death of the last Tsar. This book recounts the horrific details of his death and the thrilling discovery of the bones, and also investigates the alternative narratives that have grown up around these events. Stories include the contention that the Tsar’s killing was a Jewish plot, in which Nicholas’ severed head was taken to Moscow as proof of his death; tales of would-be survivors of the execution, self-confessed children of the Tsar claiming their true identity; and accounts of miracles performed by Nicholas, who was made a saint by the Russian church in 2000. Not least among these alternative narratives is the romanticization of the Romanovs, epitomized by the numerous photographs of the family released from the Russian archives.
