Product description

Review

An engrossing and essential addition to the human and political literature of our time." --The New York 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

"An eloquent and riveting oral history of an epochal moment of change." --Michael Ignatieff, The Los Angeles Times

"Remnick ... has achieved a very rare feat: to make the reader feel he has been present himself at a great turning point in history. It is a stunning book, moving and vivid from the first page to last." --Robert A. Caro

"Utterly absorbing.... If you did not have the opportunity to witness the Soviet empire in its death throes, Lenin's Tomb will take you there." --Jack F. Matlock, Jr. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

In the tradition of John Reed's classic Ten Days That Shook the World, this bestselling account of the collapse of the Soviet Union combines the global vision of the best historical scholarship with the immediacy of eyewitness journalism. "A moving illumination . . . Remnick is the witness for us all."--Wall Street Journal. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
