Books about the Romanovs and Imperial Russia / 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?

This is what I have been thinking lately: what made me interested in Russian history. Perhaps this was posted earlier but there might be new users of the forum who would like to share their reasons of interest.

My reason for interest in the Romanovs and the whole period before the revolution is a reaction to the emphasis on communism in history when I was at school.

As the title says: What would happen if under 19th century Romanov rule, if the tsarevitch would engage in a morganastic marriage, would he no longer be heir?

Imperial Russian History / What if Alexander III lived longer

Suppose the Borki train disaster didn't happen, AIII who was in good shape, strong person, would live on to become 75 years old. So he would be tsar in the times of social unrest in Russia.

What things would change in Russian history you think? (Somewhere I read that AIII probably would change the course of history by letting the Germans invade instead of invading Germany himself), but also domestic politics could be different.

I would be very interested in what you think of this.

Hi there,

Does anybody know if there are any books specifically about Alexander III (the peace maker)? If so, where can I purchase them?
