Nicholas and Alexandra by Robert K. Massie

Description:  This is a lush and intimate portrait of the rise and fall of the last tsar and tsarina of Russia.  This panoramic vision includes an incredible cast of characters including a general who's who in Europe at that time, the deliciously nefarious Rasputin, the fragile young Tsarevich Alexei and an array of angry revolutionaries, all clamoring for their piece of the pie.

The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

Description:  This internationally acclaimed graphic memoir of a Persian woman is elevated to art not only through her adept narration but also her skilled visual artistry.  Both personal and profound, this graphic novel offers an entry point into a culture unknown to many of us as Americans.  Satrapi illustrates her coming of age during the heartbreaking turmoil of the Islamic Revolution in Tehran as she wrestles with finding her own identity.
