The Last Tsar’s Intel and Security Agency
Monday, December 3
Sakamaki Hall A201
12:30 to 2:00 pm
Prof. Marinich will discuss the intelligence and security crises during the last few years of Tsar Nicholas II’s reign. Conflicts among government agencies led to confusion and contributed to the government’s inability to stop the Revolution of 1917. The talk includes rare photos of some of the key players in this political drama. Prof. Marinich translated and provided commentary for The Truth of the Russian Revolution: The Memoirs of the Tsar’s Last Chief of Security and His Wife (2017) and has authored scholarly articles on Russian history.
