Rasputin and the Russian Revolution

This fascinating book explores the role that Rasputin played in the downfall of the Russian Empire and the revolution of 1917. Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin (1869 – 1916) was a Russian mystic and holy man famous for his familiarity with the family of Tsar Nicholas II. He was a controversial character, viewed by some as a mystic, visionary, and prophet; and by others as a religious charlatan. Nonetheless, he garnered significant influence in late imperial Russia. He was assassinated by a group of conservative noblemen who opposed his influence over the Tsars in 1916.
