In this episode, online Master’s student Miranda Edwards joins Dr. Manamee Guha to talk more about Nicholas II and World War I. How much did his autocratic ideals clash with revolutionaries who were looking for large-scale reforms? Miranda also discusses the role Nicholas II’s wife Alexandra Feodorovna and her ally Rasputin played in pushing Russia into the throes of World War I.
