New book on Alexander III?
« on: December 18, 2011, 08:43:48 AM »
Some time ago it was mentioned that a new book in English on Alexander III would come out in 2011.

Is there any news on this?

Margarita Nelipa is working on a book about Alexander III.


I have read this wonderfull work of Mrs Nelipa. This biography about Rasputin and the fall of the Romanov dynasty is well recearched and detailed. It contains new information about the person Rasputin and the influence at the Russian court. I like the style in which this book is written: cold case style. And let us see, what the true influence was of Rasputin on the Imperial couple. I'm looking forward to read the next book of Mrs Nelipa, Alexander III.
Hi Teddy,
I really delighted that you have enjoyed reading my book. Many thanks for your kind comments.
It is my intention to complete the AIII manuscript well before the end of this year.
Best regards,
Margarita

And so would I. The only existing biography of Alexander III in the English language I know of is the one by Charles Lowe, which was written shortly after his death, I believe.

The Russian bios on Alexander III don't excite me. Now there's a tendency in the Russian historical science to white-wash any Romanov, that's why I want to read a balanced research.

My social and political biography relating to Alexander III is nearing its final stages. Hopefully it will be published in early 2012.

Svetabel, my appraisal does not provide a glossy image and will, just as with my Rasputin book, present this person as he was viewed by his contemporaries. 

Best regards,

Margarita
