Lenin’s Tomb, Last Days of the Soviet Empire: By David Remnick
Lenin’s Tomb The Last Days of the Soviet Empire: By David Remnick
Remnick shows a society led by decades of fear – citizens who feared persecution- and leaders who feared the loss of power. The author flows easily from dissecting the Communist party and power brokers of Soviet society to eating cabbage with Siberian miners who don’t expect to live past 35 to intense discussions with the Russian intelligentsia who fought the system quietly and desperately. It is a long book and at times the reader will find themselves needing a Russian history reference guide. But Remnick is not writing a history filled with facts and statistics. It is about the Russian people. This book can be shipped media rate in the U.S. for major $avings! Regular shipping rates apply at all other locations.
