Synopsis: 75 years after the execution of the last Tsar and his family, interest in them is still strong. The recent DNA identifications of their bones made worldwide headlines, as did the fact that the remains of two of the children, Alexeia and either Anastasia or Maria, are missing. From formerly secret archives in Russia have come a host of documents that are changing history - Rasputin's diaries, Lenin's orders of execution and the Imperial family's diaries. Now the full story of the last Romanovs is told in this illustrated history. From the private life of the Imperial family to such events as the murder of Rasputin, the abdication of Nicholas II and the tragic last night in Ekaterinburg, the vanished world of pre-revolutionary Russia is evoked on every spread with hundreds of archival photographs.

Review: It's easy now to indulge in nostalgia about the era of the Romanovs, and the sheer lushness of this gorgeous book is enough to encourage the indulgence. Even the text, highly readable and informative, is a little rose-tinted in places, but perhaps the authors can hardly be blamed when the gentlemanly cruelties of the old regime look so innocent next to the quintessentially totalitarian 20th-century hell that replaced them. (Nowhere was the true nature of the new "people's" dispensation revealed more vividly than in the lurid, incompetent savagery with which Nicholas II and his family were dispatched, a story reconstructed in considerable detail here.) In any case, despite a touch of sentimentality, this is a fine short history of how the Romanov dynasty ended, artfully disguised as a coffee-table book. If you merely flip through the pictures (Ekaterinburg, Tsarkoe Selo, the Cathedral of Peter and Paul at St. Petersburg, shining like a gold dagger in the snow), you will ache to travel to Russia. If you read the text, you will learn a surprising amount about the world of an almost comically ineffectual man with whom the Fates amused themselves by placing him at a key turning point in modern history. Heartless autocrat that he was, you may even end up feeling sorry for him: the cure was so much worse than the disease. --Richard Farr
