Troyat was a French author, biographer, historian and novelist. Troyat was born Levon Aslan Torossian in Moscow to parents of Armenian descent. His family fled Russia in anticipation of the revolution.

This book is a vivid account of life in Moscow, "the most Russian of Russian cities," in the yeara year before Russia's disastrous war with Japan and two years before the momentous Revolution of /5(4).

This book is a vivid account of life in Moscow, "the most Russian of Russian cities," in the yeara year before Russia's disastrous war with Japan and two years before the momentous Revolution of Though the undercurrents of social change were running swiftly, the surface stability of the Tsarist regime show no indication of the turmoil ahead.5/5(1).

In Paris and London, the crowds hailed him as the man who had conquered Napoleon, as the liberator of Europe, and as a benevolent, enlightened monarch. At home he came to be feared as a reactionary, oppressive autocrat in a country where millions of serfs were still treated as little more than personal property.

A grandson of Catherine the Great, a conspirator in the assassination of his own.

By delving into the life of Catherine the Great, this acclaimed biographer reveals the rich tapestry of Russia’s past, giving insight into the paradoxical character of its people and their stunning evolution from feudalism to communism to their present-day struggle for a free-market by: 5.

Reforms, Crimean conquests, shrewd diplomacy, suppression of rebellions--Troyat covers it all, but haphazardly, with constant resort to over-simplifications (C.'s switch from Voltaire-inspired liberalism to repression), dubious generalizations (about ""Russian irrationality,"" for instance), and ungainly gush (""She was mad for reform.
