Overview:

The King of Vodka: The Story of Pyotr Smirnov and the Upheaval of an Empire : In this sweeping history of vodka scion Pyotr Smirnov and his family, distinguished journalist Linda Himelstein plumbs a great riddle of Russian history through the story of a humble serf who rose to create one of the most celebrated business empires the world has ever known. At the center of this vivid narrative, Pyotr Smirnov comes to life as a hero of wonderful complexity - a man of intense ambition and uncanny business sense, a patriarch of a family that would help define Russian society and suffer from the revolution's aftermath, and a loyalist to a nation that would one day honor him as a treasure of the state.
