One of the best books I’ve ever read. (I am still reading.) Masterfully written. Over 20 years old now.
How does a society built on lies and death implode? Remnick answers this question in the Soviet context. Just a fantastic exploration.
And for all you well meaning but (in my estimation) deluded newly minted “socialists” this is an absolute must read. By no means some “right-wing” examination. Just an examination of the death of statism taken to its extreme.
Read it. You’ll be better informed for it. And if you remain a “socialist” after reading it then you’ll know something else about yourself. (But you might not want to know, we’ll grant you.)
