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.

Synopsis

Chronicles the collapse of the Soviet empire, from the rise of glasnost through the final lowering of the Soviet flag, to the start of the post-communist age.
