A New Rasputin Biography by Margarita Nelipa
« on: December 06, 2007, 01:24:54 AM »
To all Forum members interested in reading a new completely revised biography about Grigori Rasputin, from a Russian perspective, please click on the link provided below:

http://www.facesofrussia.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=17&Itemid=1

My intention in writing this appraisal was that it will help set aside the many rumors and misconceptions that have evolved over the decades about Rasputin and his association with the Russian Imperial  Court.

Hopefully readers will gain a more favorable impression as to who this mysterious person really was.

This discussion is being published in 3 parts in European Royal History J. beginning with the October 2007 edition, and shall become part of a much larger work which relates to my forensic and historic interpretation of the various circumstances surrounding Rasputin's demise. Hopefully this shall all mature to see the light of day if someone is willing to publish it. 

In closing I wish to express my immense appreciation to Rudy de Casseres for his fabulous ongoing contributions extended to me.

Please enjoy!

Margarita Nelipa

Looking forward to this one! In some ways Rasputin's death was start of the revolution

....Margarita Nelipa’s groundbreaking new book is based on a host of previously unknown Russian sources, including primary documents such as newspapers of the day and original police depositions, diaries and Duma documents all translated by the author. Extensive annotations and comprehensive appendices add academic strength to this popular history. .....

Oh, those news are great. I am really into Rasputin's story, and am really glad that one new Russian book is to be published. I adore Russian spirit of writing book, and I can't wait to see new details on regarding new sources. Especially some extracts from memories of his daughter.

Thank you everyone for your generous comments!

You will find that my book is very different to what has appeared in print before. With the benefit of accessing key Russian documents, diaries, confidential communications and newspaper articles of the day, my book takes a medical and legal approach to reveal all the specific details that comprised the "Rasputin Delo". The police and procuratorial  investigations interconnect with the numerous political intrigues, which emerged during the latter years of the Imperial Russia. The various machinations not only involved numerous members of the Imperial Family and polite society, but the Duma representatives and the military generals.

Furthermore, I present the real forensic report (first time to be published in the West) and include all the police depositions in unabridged form in translation. There is also re-examination of the crime itself, presenting a common sense approach that shall reveal who initiated the conspiracy to murder Rasputin, why this deed was undertaken and the political ramifications after the deed was carried out. I must confess that the entire episode is rather a sordid matter that was hidden among the pages of Russian history but now has been told.

Margarita, I am looking forward to read your book, but could you please specify if you used a lot of really new material, I mean not only new material for the west, in english, but also not yet published in russian? Did you research on the differents russian archives? Or did you based your research on already published material (Platonov, for instance)? Thank you for answer!

Rudy

But Rudy, Van Hoogstraten doesn't sells the book anymore. Gilbert Royal Books, whose owner is a strange fellow, stopped his business relation with van Hoogstraten because of an argument.

And that date: nobody knows for sure if that's the correct date. Gilbert has promised more things, but never finished or finished correctly.

Paul Gilbert is publishing the book - he has provided regular updates.  Anyone who has been around for awhile knows that delivery dates of books regularly slip.  If you are interested in the book see: http://www.angelfire.com/pa/ImperialRussian/grb/grbpg30.html

I have bought books from Paul several times and had no problems.

reading this thread it is fairly obivious that you have some problems with Paul.  However, Margarita would not be working with Paul if she wasn't confident of the outcome as am I.  Paul has been careful to not take pre-orders until he is ready (see the web page I posted yesterday) and I have no reason to expect that he won't deliver the book when he (eventually) says he will.
