Praise

“A powerful and morally compelling tract, not merely for our times but for the next half-century.” –Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Unlike so much of the current rash of books seeking to make sense of the post-Communist world, Free World is totally engaging. . . . It will be of great use to anyone seeking to make sense of what is going on today.” –The New York Times Book Review

“Fascinating. . . . Eloquent. . . . A model of common-sense reasoning.” –The New York Times

“Stirring. . . . This extraordinarily astute and beautifully written book will take its place as a classic in the field.” –Foreign Affairs
