Robert Service in conversation with Patrick Geoghegan
The Last of the Tsars is a masterful study of Nicholas II, the last Tsar of All the Russias, a man who was almost entirely out of his depth, perhaps even willfully so. It is also a compelling account of the social, economic and political foment in Russia in the aftermath of Alexander Kerensky’s February Revolution, the Bolshevik seizure of power in October 1917 and the beginnings of Lenin’s Soviet republic.
Robert Service is a Fellow of St Antony’s College, Oxford. He has written biographies of Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin and several other books on Russia past and present.
Patrick Geoghegan is Professor of Modern History at Trinity College Dublin.
