Overview

REDISCOVERED: EYEWITNESS HISTORY Opening with an intimate, dramatic account of the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881, this long-lost partial history describes the personalities and actions of the last tsars during the years leading up to the Russian Revolution. Glittering royals, politicians, military officers, scoundrels and anarchists all walk across these pages as they did in life during the last years of the tsars.

Alexander II, Alexander III, and the last tsar--the ill-fated Nicholas II--each attempted to forestall the forces of revolution. This eyewitness history is based on exclusive access to the original manuscript memoirs of Count Loris-Melikov, Tsar Alexander II's chief minister, and by the author's personal experience in Tsar Nicholas II's government as Secretary-in-Chief of the Duma.

Appendix: Interview with Count Leo Tolstoy

Edited and with an introduction by Irene Vartanoff
