Críticas:

'More than a testimony to Hughes' remarkable spirit, this is the best book in English on the subject, illuminated by a deep knowledge of Russia's imperial past, wide in scope yet admirable in its concision, and infused with a subtlety of interpretation free of the overheated, romantic treatment that has clouded most previous accounts.' Douglas Smith, The Times Literary Supplement, July 2008. "a history achieved with consummate skill...an illuminating and admirably balanced narrative account" Reviewed in Literary Review, 2008 Recommended book in Publishing News, 8 February 2008 'Ony {Hughes} ... could have written such a wide-ranging, scholarly and captivating distillation of the entire history of the Romanov family. The book is enlivened at all points by discussions of painting, architecture, and statuary; Hughes's command of detail is stunning.' David Saunders, School of Historical Studies, Newcastle University "Vivid portrait of the entire Romanov family, who shaped Russian history and politics so pwerfully" Bookseller Buyers Guide,1 January 2008

Reseña del editor:

This title provides a vivid and original portrait of the entire Romanov family, who shaped Russian history and politics for three centuries and whose legacy still sparks the public's imagination.For 300 years the history of Russia was inextricably linked to that of one family: The Romanovs. Claiming a divine right to reign and tracing the family line back to Peter the Great they shaped the history of Russia, for better or for worse, for three centuries. The influence of Michael, Ivan, Catherine II, Nicholas I and Alexander III defined the politics, society, art and philosophy of their times and lead to the establishment of Russia as one of the great world powers. But when the Romanov's gathered to celebrate their tercentenary in 1913 dark clouds were gathering all around. Rasputin had prophesized their demise and his unpopular influence on the Tsar was growing. The strain of the First World War had spread unrest throughout Russia. On July 17th, 1918 three hundred and four years of the Romanov dynasty ended when, probably under Lenin's orders, Tsar Nicholas II, his wife and five children were brutally murdered by a Bolshevik execution squad.This brilliant and original new work on the entire Romanov family paints a vivid picture of the dynasty and illustrates exactly what it contributed to the creation of Russia. By bringing the characters of the Tsars and their family to life, Lindsey Hughes has added so much to our knowledge of this fascinating dynasty.
