What is Asia to Us?: Russia's Asian Heartland Yesterday and Today

By Hauner, Milan

London: Routledge, 1992. "What is Asia to Us", now available in paperback, looks at the uneasy relationship of Russia and Soviet Central Asia. It examines both the significance of Asia to the Russian mind and the place that Asia has occupied in Russian geopolitical thinking over the last hundred years, showing that recent outbreaks of violence are only the latest manifestation of long-standing tension. Hauner surveys events from the conquest of Turkestan to the invasion of Afghanistan and beyond in order to reassess existing theories about Russia's aims in Asia. He also examines the views of Russians themselves and explores the place of Eurasia in Mikhail Gorbachev's vision of a "common European house". This book should be of interest to undergraduates, postgraduates and academics in the fields of Russian and Soviet history and politics, international relations and geography.. First Thus..

The Last Grand-Duchess : Her Imperial Highness Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna 1882-1960

By Vorres, Ian

Toronto: Key Porter, 2001. When she died in exile in 1960, Olga Alexandrovna was the last Grand Duchess of Russia, the favorite sister of Czar Nicholas II who was executed with his wife and five children during the Revolution. Born in splendor difficult to imagine today, she endured a lifetime of relentless tragedy with courage and exceptional powers of adjustment. The Last Grand Duchess is a valuable account of the final decades of the house of Romanov as seen through the eyes of its last surviving member. Through Olga, we meet Queen Victoria, George V of England, Rasputin, Mrs. Anderson - on whose story the movie Anastasia was made - and other impostors who plagued the exiled duchess with false hope. In this official memoir, Ian Vorres captures the loneliness and violence of Olga's years in Russia, her loveless first marriage to Prince Peter of Oldenburg, her years of exile in England and Denmark, and her final settlement with her second husband and family in Canada. Long out of print, and now reissued in a handsomely illustrated edition, The Last Grand Duchess is the thorough and engaging official biography of an extraordinary woman."
