Catherine the Great

Annotation
No one does Russian history like Massie, who hooked readers with Nicholas and Alexandra and went on to win a Pulitzer for Peter the Great. Iron-hard ruler of Russia in the 1700s, Catherine expanded the borders of her empire while bringing it into Europe's cultural orbit and juggling lovers along the way. For all upscale readers.
