Russia in Transition: The Last Century of the Romanovs
Study Russia in 1815-1917. Start with the destruction of Napoleon's invading army and trace the relentless march of tsarist autocracy through the reigns of Alexander I, Nicholas I, and the brutal and anti-Semitic Alexander III. To these sinister figures add a counterpoint in the progressive spirit of Alexander II and in the gentle but weak-minded Nicolas II. Wrangham is an internationally published commentator who shares his passion for understanding how the past influences the present.
