I will look forward to the publication of this book.  I've recently become interested in Imperial Russia, and this book sounds like a must read.

Here is the latest news about my forthcoming book that appeared on Paul Gilbert's site:

"Tsesarevich Alexei Nikolayevich, is the subject of Margarita Nelipa's newest book, to be published by Gilbert's Books in May 2015. Alexei: Russia’s Last Imperial Heir, A Chronicle of Tragedy is the first comprehensive biography in English about Emperor Nikolai II’s only son, and Russia’s last imperial heir who was born during wartime and died during Russia’s revolutionary upheaval. She examines all the interconnecting political and social issues that prevailed during the Tsesarevich’s lifetime. 

From the first day of his birth to his last hour, Alexei’s medical crises weave throughout the book. The inherited ailment affected his behavior and influenced the education he received. Using medical data, Nelipa exposes the truth about Rasputin’s telegrams that purportedly alleviated Alexei’s near fatal condition in Spala in 1912. Despite his hemophilia, Nelipa discovered that Alexei, like all Romanov males, did have a planned military career and yet the malady swayed Nikolai II to also abdicate on his son’s behalf. 

During his lifetime, Alexei participated in several momentous national events, including the centenary of the Battle at Borodino in 1912 and the Romanov Tercentenary in 1913. Accompanying his father, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, Alexei witnessed several theaters of war during 1915-16. Though he, like his sisters did not witness the revolutionary conflict on the streets of Petrograd or Tsarskoe Selo, he did suffer the consequences of his father’s downfall – firstly as a prisoner of the Provisional Government and after that, by the Leninist Regime. Supported by documentary evidence, Nelipa explains why the Provisional Government forced the imperial family into exile. Nowhere else can one read the full harrowing account of the imperial family’s life in Siberia that began with their detention in Tobolsk. It is impossible not to develop compassion for Alexei, who towards the end of his short life, unable to walk, died in a cellar because of who he was. The story of the family’s exile reveals a close loving family who focused on Alexei’s well-being despite the hardships imposed on all of them by the revolutionary forces.

Nelipa once again relies on Russian primary sources which include diaries, letters, wartime and official government and military documents as well as memoirs and newspapers of the day besides Alexei’s own set of letters and diary all translated by the author. Extensive annotations, several appendices and some 400 illustrations add strength to this work. A year-by-year portrait study also offers a fresh dimension to this biography of Tsesarevich Alexei Nikolayevich – Russia’s last imperial heir.

Margarita Nelipa is a historian of Russian heritage with medical and legal training. Her previous books, Alexander III: His Life and Reign (2014) and The Murder of Grigorii Rasputin, A Conspiracy that Brought Down the Russian Empire (2010), are also published by Gilbert's Books, the publishing division of Royal Russia. Reprints of both of these titles are planned for release in the Spring of 2015. She is also resident writer for the bi-annual publication, Royal Russia: A Celebration of the Romanov Dynasty and Imperial Russia."

AHHHHH! OMG I am SO happy to hear this!!!!! I've been waiting for this kind of book focusing on Aleksei for a VERY long time. I'm definitely going to buy it as soon as it's out, if it's not out already. <3 THANK YOU HELEN! *weeps tears of joy... no kidding, eyes are welled up* Aleksei is a tremendous inspirational figure in my life. I care for him deeply, and although I feel like I know him, this book will give me a real glimpse into his soul. This means the world to me. Thank you.

July is a fitting time as far as Romanov books go. Not too long before Alexei's birthday, either.

Sorry about that, regardless I am really excited and look forward to it. With the way I have to view this site due to my disability it's hard to tell who posted what and somehow I missed the author name. Congratulations at any rate! Again, I really look forward to it. It will really give me not just a glimpse, but a panorama, into the world Aleksei lived in.

Yes, the timing is rather appropriate.

I was just amazed by your work on your previous two books. The ammount of information and detail was just incredible, and I am sure you put as much effort into this book as well!

Urgh. So I checked Hoogstraten today and apparently "This product will be in stock on Thursday 24 September, 2015'". What a bummer! But I´m sure the wait will be worth it.

I am thrilled that you enjoyed reading my two previous books and appreciated the effort I put into each. Thank you!

Perhaps you may consider giving your feedback on the U. S. amazon site?

I am assured that Alexei's biography will become available later this month, in September. The good news is that it is being printed now.
