Praise

“Monumental … lucidly written, unsurpassed in detail and comprehensiveness.” —The Wall Street Journal on The Russian Revolution

“Profound and rigorous…. Offers a penetrating analysis of the making of the Soviet system . . no review could do full justice to this great work…. [It is] a passionate book whose outstanding scholarship is rooted in universal values like truth, honor, responsibility and the sacredness of human life.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

“Timely…. The work is enriched in intriguing ways by the author’s access to the once-secret archives of the Soviet Union.” —Los Angeles Times

“Remarkable…. A heavy indictment of Lenin and his colleagues which Pipes presents with deadly effect. . . . [His] portrait of Lenin shows that … his cruelty was more rational than Stalin’s but equally remorseless.Pipes has performed a notable service in making all these things plain.” —Sunday Times (London)

“Richard Pipes is one of the most perceptive observers of the Russian scene.” —Christian Science Monitor

“Destined to replace … the standard source on the subject.” —New Leader

“Inspired…. Few other historians have so powerfully chronicled the ferocity of Bolshevik sentiment and Bolshevik practice.” —Sunday Telegraph

“A brilliant scholar The chapter on cultural policies … is the best short survey of its kind A monumental political history.” —Guardian

“Magnificent. … It is [the] contemporary background which makes Pipes’s book so compelling…. We owe a debt of gratitude to Richard Pipes forat long last giving us a history of the Russian revolution ‘as it actually was.’ ” —Daily Mail

“A tremendously distinguished work of revisionist history …. Pipes makes even the most complex events comprehensible…. Original and often startling…. It is rare that a book is both completely revisionist and liable to become the standard text on its subject. This is one.” —Daily Telegraph
