I felt like I was living in a world teetering on the brink ... Life as a stay-in-bed husband turned out to be a lot more complicated than I expected. My wife was pregnant with a baby that possibly wasn't mine. My old man was engaged in a war with the feminist movement that he was never going to win. And my old dear was making a lot of unexplained trips to Russia. Throw into the mix an eldest son with a possible sex addiction and three infant sons who were so thick they made me look like Edward Einstein. I might have actually gone over the edge if it wasn't for the belief of my daughter and the challenge of helping her win the greatest prize that South Dublin has to offer - the Strictly Mount Anville glitter ball.

"The grandeur of Imperial Russia is captured in this spectacular book featuring the dress and uniforms of Emperors and officials of the Russian court. Starting in the 1730s with lavishly embroidered coats and elaborately patterned silk banyans from the wardrobe of Tsar Peter II and spanning a period of almost two centuries, these garments document a unique dialogue between military uniform, court dress, European fashion and traditional Russian costume. Magnificence of the Tsars celebrates the majesty of masculine uniform in Russia at its finest. Svetlana Amelekhina is Curator of Imperial Court Dress at the Kremlin. Dr Rosalind P. Blakesley is a Fellow of Pembroke College and Senior Lecturer in the History of Art at the University of Cambridge. A specialist in Russian art, she has worked extensively in Russia, and curated exhibitions in London, Moscow and Washington DC."--BOOK JACKET.
