In this evocative biography, internationally acclaimed historian Brian Moynahan pieces together the life and death of Rasputin--one of the most mysterious, paradoxical and infamous figures of pre-revolutionary Russia. Provides insight into one of the most fascinating legends of the 20th century. Rasputin was born a peasant and remained coarse and largely uneducated his entire life, yet through his piousness, politics and charisma, he held sway in one of the greatest royal houses of Europe. Set against a vivid backdrop of royalty, war, and budding revolution, Rasputin is a dazzling portrait of a man as well as an era. Drawing on confidential reports--some available only since the fall of the Soviet Union--and personal documents, Moynahan sheds new light on Rasputin's enigmatic life and mysterious death. 2017.
