"Witte's spectacular rise during the reign of Alexander III was followed by a more troubled relationship with Nicholas II, who ultimately broke with his premier in 1906. Having negotiated the Portsmouth Treaty that ended the Russo-Japanese War and drafted the October Manifesto that made Russia a constitutional monarchy, Witte had worn out his welcome in the imperial court. He withdrew into an embittered retirement, worked on his memoirs, and spent his last decade - in Bernard Pares's words - "watching a set of fools demolish a mighty empire." This is the first full-scale biography of Witte in English, by the historian who edited and translated Witte's memoirs."--BOOK JACKET.
