Описание: From 11 July to 13 September 2009 the Grimaldi Forum in Montecarlo presents an exhibition focused on Mother Russia during the Romanov era. The Romanov dynasty reigned over Russia for three hundred years. Every sovereign was without exception crowned in the cathedral of the Dormition within the Kremlin. The coronation ceremonies used to return the former capital to the splendour it had lost to Saint Petersburg. The exhibition and its catalogue aim to make it possible to rediscover a Moscow that is frequently overlooked by foreign visitors in favour of the northern capital and, through the works of art embodying the dynasty, reveal the reign of the Romanovs, which symbolizes almost three centuries of Russian artistic riches.

Описание: 'This extremely interesting, truthful, and honest book gives an objective and dramatic picture of Russia. If others in the West had understood my country as profoundly as Rodric Braithwaite does, history would have treated us all more kindly.' Mikhail Gorbachev Rodric Braithwaite was British ambassador to Moscow during the critical years of Perestroika and the collapse of the Soviet Union, the failed coup of August 1991, and the rise of Boris Yeltsin. From the vantage point of the British Embassy (once the mansion of the great nineteenth-century merchant Pavel Kharitonenko) with its commanding views across the Moscow River to Red Square and the Kremlin, Braithwaite had a ringside seat. With his long experience of Russia and the Russians, who saw him as 'Mrs Thatcher's Ambassador', on good personal terms with Mikhail Gorbachev, he was in a privileged position close to the centre of Russia's changing relationship with the West. But this is not primarily a memoir. It is an intimate analysis of momentous change and the people who drove it, against the background of Russia's long history and its unique but essentially European culture. Braithwaite watched as Gorbachev and his allies struggled to modernise and democratise a system which had already reached the point of terminal decay. Against the opposition of the generals, they forced the abandonment of the nuclear confrontation as the Soviet Union fell apart. The climax of the drama came in August 1991 when a miscellaneous collection of conservative patriots - generals, politicians and secret policemen - attempted to reverse the course of history and succeeded only in accelerating the collapse of the Soviet Union. Braithwaite left Moscow with Russia at its lowest ebb, grappling with the problems of an unfamiliar market economy on its uncertain path towards becoming a modern liberal state. Written with vigour, frankness and hope, and with a considerable feel for atmosphere and tension, this is a revealing and compassionate account of one of the twentieth century's most dramatic reversals of fortune. Rodric Braithwaite and his wife Jill were based in Moscow from September 1988 to May 1992.
