About This Item

NY: Viking Adult, 1976. 1st Edition Printing Unknown. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 8 x 2 x 10 inches. Exactly 175 years ago, on the Senate Square in St. Petersburg, a failed uprising ignited a process that would, one red October, finally sweep the autocracy away. The Shadow of the Winter Palace recounts an extraordinary century of Russian history, a politically tempestuous time that was also a Golden Age of intellectual and artistic achievement-the century of Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy, of Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky. A master stylist and a distinguished historian, Edward Crankshaw limns dazzling portraits of the czars, the revolutionaries, and a host of other unforgettable characters-and provides a riveting, sweeping history "jam-packed with information about the past and implications for the present" Hardcover: 429 pages Publisher: Viking Adult; First Edition edition (August 19, 1976) Language: English ISBN-10: 0670637823 ISBN-13: 978-0670637829 Product Dimensions: 8 x 2 x 10 inches Shipping Weight: 1.7 pounds
