Rasputin: A Life

description:

One of the more scholarly biographies of Rasputin.

unique features:

Serious and well-researched, yet still accessible to the common reader.

in my opinion:

A solid biography, though I can’t help but question the accuracy of the word-for-word recountings of extended conversations which took place 80-some years ago.
