    DescriptionFrom 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 naivete, 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.

Not only the main characters but a whole era become alive and comprehensible."--"Harper's" Peter the Great Winner of the Pulitzer Prize "Enthralling . . . as fascinating as any novel and more so than most."--"The New York Times Book Review" " " The Romanovs "Riveting . . . unfolds like a detective story.""--Los Angeles Times Book Review"

    Review quote
    "A larger-than-life drama."--"Saturday Review" "A moving, rich book . . . [This] revealing, densely documented account of the last Romanovs focuses not on the great events . . . but on the royal family and their evil nemesis. . . . The tale is so bizarre, no melodrama is equal to it."--"Newsweek" "A wonderfully rich tapestry, the colors fresh and clear, every strand sewn in with a sure hand. Mr. Massie describes those strange and terrible years with sympathy and understanding. . . . They come vividly before our eyes."--"The New York Times" "An all-too-human picture . . . Both Nicholas and Alexandra with all their failings come truly alive, as does their almost storybook romance."--"Newsday" "A magnificent and intimate picture . . . Not only the main characters but a whole era become alive and comprehensible."--"Harper's" "From the Trade Paperback edition."
