"Colón has put forth the notion that Rasputin's advocacy on behalf of the country's Jews contributed to his demise." --The Jewish Literary Review - Steve Pollak
"Almost every day, I am privileged to hear from authors who call my attention to their newly-published books. But none of them claimed my attention quite as forcefully as Delin Colón, author of Rasputin and the Jews: A Reversal of History." --- JewishJournal.com - Jonathan Kirsch
"Mrs. Colón's dissertation is a brief but well-written exposition on a historical figure who was both maligned and misunderstood when it comes to written Jewish and Russian history." -- New York Journal of Books --Charles Weinblatt, reviewer and author of "Jacob's Courage".
"This book becomes a short course on revolutionary Russian history and gets gold stars as an example of a well-produced self-published book." -- Diana Brement, JTNews columnist

Rasputin & the Jews: A Reversal of History is a vindication of Rasputin's good deeds by a writer who has nothing to gain by correcting the historical record, other than sharing the true story of a man whose reputation has been maligned because he dared oppose the people who had the most to lose by permitting some semblance of human rights to Jews and other peasants: The nobility.
Most people like Rasputin (a 'victim' of his own sincere, good deeds) have no one to defend him, so it is a true gift to his actions and to history to see the record set straight.
My hat is off to Delin Colon for taking the bull by the horns and bringing it to heel. A well-written documentation of facts that vindicates a true man of God.
The writing was well done and made me want to continue reading what is often very dull and dry material. I found this book to be informative and interesting, especially because of the writing. I would recommend that anyone who is interested in Russian history of the last century should read this account.
A survey of primary and secondary sources about a fascinating geographical area, era, and man, Colon's *Rasputin and the Jews* is accessible reading for the armchair historian while providing citations for further study by scholars. Told in a friendly writing style, the text is entertaining and informative.
Anyone with an interest in Russia, the powers behind the First World War, the political systems of that era, or Rasputin himself should not fail to read this compelling account.

The author makes a reasoned,and convincingly researched case, proving that the truth about this complex
personality is in fact very different.
An enjoyable realistic reappraisal of the personalities ,the era,the politics and the events of those turbulent times.
It is too biased to be of any use other than a memoir of sorts, though the feel from the author is that it is an academic piece of research created to refute other historical research. It doesn't actually achieve that, it is too personal and full of personal pain and memory.
Interesting nonetheless but fails to achieve what it set out to do. Writing could not hope to encompass the subject it set out to cover.
