Reviews

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.
