Robert Service is an internationally acclaimed professor of Russian history and well placed to assess Nicholas II, a man who was almost entirely out of his depth, perhaps even wilfully so. His talk, The Last of the Tsars: Nicholas II and The Russian Revolution, is also a compelling account of the social, economic and political aftermath of Alexander Kerenskys February Revolution, the Bolshevik seizure of power in October 1917 and the beginnings of Lenins Soviet Republic.
