KIRKUS REVIEW

More history and politics than biography in this concise sketch of the most critical moments of the Russian revolution and the unexpected abdication of Nicholas II. The author has plumbed the memoirs of contemporaries at that time, the latest documents which have turned up, and there is a fresh interpretation of the fall of the dynasty in the light of these new disclosures. Furthermore, there is little bias -- and Nicholas and his ailing empress are re-appraised fairly. An old, but a moving story, soberly handled.
