Rasputin : a life

Joseph T. Fuhrmann

A biography of Grigory Rasputin, the Russian holy man who hastened the collapse of an empire. The book recounts Rasputin's journey from his peasant origins in Siberia to his powerful position at the right hand of Tsar Nicholas and Alexandra. The author uses newly available sources and puts to rest the many myths surrounding his character. He documents the precise degree of influence Rasputin exerted on the Russian government, as well as the conspiracy that took Rasputin's life, the murder itself, the investigation and the unmasking of the culprits.
