Erickson¿s meticulously researched and delightfully well-written works have made me a huge fan of this Columbia University historian. I absolutely loved this biography of Catherine the Great of Russia, whose startlingly unconventional lifestyle made her one of Russia¿s most enlightened and progressive rulers. Once again, Erickson¿s sympathetic but rigorous inspection of the most intimate details of Catherine¿s life makes me feel as though everything I had learned previously about this Empress of All the Russias paled in comparison to the wealth of interesting and informative facets Erickson so deftly presents to her readers.
