Alexander II: The Last Great Tsar

description:

A biography of Alexander II, “Russia’s Lincoln” by a popular Russian dramatist and historian. Illustrated with 16 pages of black and white photos. 

unique features:

A uniquely Russian perspective; the only English-language biography (to my knowledge) to focus exclusively on Alexander II. 

similar to:

Last Tsar: The Life and Death of Nicholas II

in my opinion:

Radzinsky’s dramatic flair grates on some readers, but his access to Russian sources generally makes up for any irritation.
