it was amazing
Read in January, 2008

This book was an excellent group of essays on the life and death or the USSR. Like the last book, the accounts here show that the USSR was never the secure, strong state it appeared to be, but a cruel and chaotically strange state. I feel like I understand modern Russia a lot more and Ryszard was amazingly accurate in his predictions- as seen in Putin's Russia.
