Praise

New York Times Book Review
"...Mr. Radzinsky is a gripping storyteller, and he does not disappoint here. He has a sure eye for the striking anecdote, especially concerning personal details....Himself a playwright and a product of the Soviet literary world, Mr. Radzinsky provides especially valuable insight into the ambivalent relationship between Stalin and writers like Mikhail Bulgakov, Osip Mandelstam, and Boris Pasternak....This biography deserves the wide readership that it will no doubt receive." - Steven Merritt Miner 05/05/1996

Kirkus Reviews
"A remarkable and gripping biography that may change the way we view Stalin and will certainly change many of the interpretations of his life." 02/15/1996

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"...a compulsively readable account of Stalin's life, much of it based on documents recently made available from Stalin's personal archive and the Archive of the Soviet Communist Party. Radzinsky's Stalin emerges as the ultimate political chess master, endowed with uncanny foresight, who sacrificed people instead of chess pieces to achieve his ends." 03/31/1996

Mirabella
"You'll remain spellbound for a terrifying tale, told in full for the first time...Imagine if our country's worst secrets--the Manhattan Project, the Nixon tapes, the Pentagon Papers, Iran-Contra, and far worse--all came tumbling out in one Tolstoyan narrative....The frightening current of Stalinist nostalgia in Russia raises Radzinsky's work of historical genius to immediate import." - Carolyn White
