Book Description HTML
First published in 1918, 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. Contents include: "Rasputin", "The Great Revolution", and "The Riddle of the Future". Many vintage book such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.
