Issue section: 

Philip Pomper, Norton, £17.99

This is an interesting and readable account of what led to the assassination attempt on Tsar Alexander III in St Petersburg, in which Alexander Ulyanov was centrally involved and for which he was hanged. He was the elder brother of Vladimir Ulyanov (Lenin). The attempt to kill the Tsar would be on the sixth anniversary of the assassination of Tsar Alexander II on 1 March 1887.
