  3. “[A] tale of power, perseverance and passion . . . a great story in the hands of a master storyteller.”—“The Wall Street Journal” The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “Peter the Great, Nicholas and Alexandra, “and” The Romanovs “returns with another masterpiece of narrative biography, the extraordinary story of an obscure German princess who became one of the most remarkable, powerful, and captivating women in history. Born into a minor noble family, Catherine transformed herself into empress of Russia by sheer determination. For thirty-four years, the government, foreign policy, cultural development, and welfare of the Russian people were in her hands. She dealt with domestic rebellion, foreign wars, and the tidal wave of political change and violence churned up by the French Revolution. Catherine’s family, friends, ministers, generals, lovers, and enemies—all are here, vividly brought to life. History offers few stories richer than that of Catherine the Great. In this book, an eternally fascinating woman is returned to life. ”[A] compelling portrait not just of a Russian titan, but also of a flesh-and-blood woman.”—“Newsweek” ” “ “An absorbing, satisfying biography.”—“Los Angeles Times” “Juicy and suspenseful.”—“The New York Times Book Review” “A great life, indeed, and irresistibly told.”—Salon NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY “The New York Times – The Washington Post – USA Today – The Boston Globe – San Francisco Chronicle – Chicago Tribune – Newsweek/“The Daily Beast”“- Salon – “Vogue” – “St. Louis Post-Dispatch – The Providence Journal – Washington Examiner – “South Florida” Sun-Sentinel – BookPage – “Bookreporter – “Publishers Weekly”

  12. This pack really is incredible value and if you do know someone who still has a soft spot for the sixties and the music from that era then you are going to be their best friend if you give them this gift. If we listed all the fantastic endorsements and quotes that are printed on the front and back covers of these books you would think we were over doing it, but suffice to say these are excellent reads and more importantly they all come across as factual, uncut, revealing and as truthful as they can be. Classic Rock & Roll Biographies of Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, & 'Mama' Cass Elliot. SHOUT! The True Story of the Beatles by Philip Norman. In the first Beatles biography, Philip Norman has close working relationships with each of the Fab Four, having interviewed them many times since 1965 and observed first hand the events that led to the split during 1969-70. The resulting book contained insights into the rise of the Beatles, their final years, the chaos of Apple and the collapse of Hippy idealism. Invisible Republic: Bob Dylan by Greil Marcus Focuses on the production of the Basement Tapes, the suppressed recordings made by Bob Dylan and The Band in 1967 in Big Pink, Woodstock. This book returns to the folk/mythological preoccupations of Greil Marcus's Mystery Train: Images of America in Rock 'n' Roll Music. Jimi Hendrix: The Man, the Magic, the Truth by Sharon Lawrence Sharon Lawrence tells and shows - in rich detail - who Jimi Hendrix really was and what really happened to him during his short life, and what has happened to his legacy in the more than thirty years of greed and game-playing since his tragically early death. Fellow rock stars and musicians, childhood neighbours, lawyers and newspaper editors are among those who knew Jimi well and are now willing to speak about who he really was and what events marked his lightning-fast ride to the top, and the extraordinary highs and lows which ultimately led to his death.

    A hundred years after his murder, Rasputin continues to excite the popular imagination as the personification of evil. The spectre of the lustful Siberian holy man and peasant still casts its eerie shadow over Russia’s bloody twentieth century. Numerous biographies, novels, and films recount his mysterious rise to power as Nicholas and Alexandra’s confidant and guardian of the sickly heir to the throne. His debauchery and sinister political influence are the stuff of legend, and the downfall of the Romanov dynasty was laid at his feet. Even during his lifetime Rasputin was shrouded in myth and his true story remains obscure today. Douglas Smith’s Rasputin separates fact from fiction to reveal the true life of one of history’s most alluring figures. Rasputin draws on a wealth of forgotten documents from archives in seven countries and is the most thoroughly researched biography ever written. Demolishing the caricature of the holy devil, Smith’s account presents Rasputin in all his complexity – man of God, voice of peace, loyal subject, adulterer, drunkard. More than just the story of an extraordinary life, Rasputin offers a fascinating portrait of the twilight of Imperial Russia as it lurched towards catastrophe.
