Winner of the Pulitzer Prize
One of the Best Books of the Year: The New York Times 

From the editor of The New Yorker: a riveting account of the collapse of the Soviet Union, which has become the standard book on the subject. Lenin’s Tomb combines the global vision of the best historical scholarship with the immediacy of eyewitness journalism. Remnick takes us through the tumultuous 75-year period of Communist rule leading up to the collapse and gives us the voices of those who lived through it, from democratic activists to Party members, from anti-Semites to Holocaust survivors, from Gorbachev to Yeltsin to Sakharov. An extraordinary history of an empire undone, Lenin’s Tomb stands as essential reading for our times.

Review:

"...the most eloquent chronicle of the Soviet empire's demise." --Washington Post Book World

"...an extraordinary confluence of observation, hard work, knowledge, and reflection; a better book by a journalist on the withdrawing roar of the Soviet Union is hard to imagine." --The New York Times Book Review

From the Publisher:

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.
