9780679645634: The Romanovs: The Final Chapter (Modern Library)

From the Modern Library’s new set of beautifully repackaged hardcover classics by Robert K. Massie—also available are Peter the Great and Nicholas and Alexandra

In July 1991, nine skeletons were exhumed from a shallow mass grave near Ekaterinburg, Siberia, a few miles from the infamous cellar room where the last tsar and his family had been murdered seventy-three years before. But were these the bones of the Romanovs? And if these were their remains, where were the bones of the two younger Romanovs supposedly murdered with the rest of the family? Was Anna Anderson, celebrated for more than sixty years in newspapers, books, and film, really Grand Duchess Anastasia? The Romanovs provides the answers, describing in suspenseful detail the dramatic efforts to discover the truth. Pulitzer Prize winner Robert K. Massie, the author of Catherine the Great, presents a colorful panorama of contemporary characters, illuminating the major scientific dispute between Russian experts and a team of Americans, whose findings, along with those of DNA scientists from Russia, America, and Great Britain, all contributed to solving one of the great mysteries of the twentieth century.

From the Publisher:

The lives of the Romanovs are utterly fascinating, and this book is the definitive authority on the scoop behind one of the greatest mysteries of the 20th century. If you can catch one of the travelling exhibits featuring the Romanov's jewels or their books, I'd recommend it, and read this book first-- you'll appreciate the exhibits even more.
--Stacey Witcraft, Advertising Manager

From the Inside Flap:

In 1991, nine skeletons were exhumed from a shallow grave near Ekaterinberg, Siberia. Were these the remains of the last tsar and his family, murdered over 70 years before? Pulitzer Prize winner Massie now answers this question, going back to the horrifying moments of the slaughter, and describing in detail the ultimately successful efforts in post-communist Russia to discover the truth. of photos.
