Since glasnost began, Russia's most eminent historians have taken advantage of new archival access and the end of censorship and conformity to publish fundamental reinterpretations of their history. Freed of ideological prescriptions, they have reforged links with prerevolutionary Russian historiography as well as with world historians.

The Emperors and Empresses of Russia is one of the first fruits of this new beginning. In these biographical portraits of the tsars, commissioned by the Russian journal Voprosy istorii, world-renowned Russian historians tell the story of the Romanovs as a dynasty, as individual personalities, and as key actors in Russian history--from the empire builder Peter I to the last tsar, Nicholas II. These portraits are contributions to the writing of history, partaking neither of wooden ideologization nor of naive romanticization. There is no comparable book available in English.
