The definitive biography of Russia's first tsar and one of its most infamous rulers. 

"Charles Halperin has accomplished an extraordinary feat: a balanced assessment of Ivan the Terrible. Finally, we have a treatment that situates the tsar in both historical and historiographic context. The book is coherent and readable, straightforward in its presentation of evidence and forthright in its assessment of various alternative explanations for the strange, destructive episodes in the reign of this elusive figure." - Valerie A. Kivelson, University of Michigan
