A biography of Alexander II, “Russia’s Lincoln” by a popular Russian dramatist and historian. Illustrated with 16 pages of black and white photos.
A uniquely Russian perspective; the only English-language biography (to my knowledge) to focus exclusively on Alexander II.
in my opinion:
Radzinsky’s dramatic flair grates on some readers, but his access to Russian sources generally makes up for any irritation.
