KIRKUS REVIEW

Here's a book for the Neumann market (Another Caesar, etc) -- fictionized biography, dramatically handled, and authentic in background and incident. It's a fascinating period -- this Russia, more than half barbaric, with a ruler who has great vision of what his country might grow to be, but such passions, emotional instability, cruelty, that he destroys as he builds. Exciting reading, this story of his loves and hates -- against the panorama of a Europe in constant turmoil.
