An eloquent and riveting oral history of an epochal moment of change. Michael Ignatieff, The Los Angeles Times
The most eloquent chronicle of the Soviet empire's demise published to date.... It is hard to conceive of a work that might surpass it. Francine du Plessix Gray, Washington Post Book World
