Reviews

Eerily fascinating...Probably the best, most accurate and useful to histor insider account we will ever have. One does not so much read this book as engage in a one-on-one conversation with a major figure in a gigantic criminal organization. -- Woodford McClellan University Of Virginia Offers real insight into top level Stalinist politics... The New York Times An important book, the same way Mein Kampf or Mao's Red Book are important...grippingly vivid. -- Arnold Beichman The Washington Times Of the spate of memoirs published, the most valuable may be Molotov's...should be published in every language. -- David Remnick, author of Lenin's Tomb Molotov Remembers is a major contribution to the study of Soviet history, and it makes spellbinding reading to boot... [T]his book certainly deserves the widest possible readership. Gazelle [This book] is an invaluable document... Molotov's rigid doctrinaire approach, which allows the reader to get to know him as he really was, is the main attraction of the book. Slavic Review What is effectively conveyed by the conversations, however, is something generally more elusive and less palpable, namely, the world view of Molotov and, though Molotov's example, the categories and structures of Bolshevik thought in its Stalinist variant. Political Science Quarterly [The book] offers real insight into top-level Stalinist politics. New York Times A book worth reading to understand the inside struggle in erstwhile USSR. U.S.I. Journal: India's Oldest Journal Of Defense Affairs [U]nique 'memoir' of the political history of the Soviet Union. Book News, Inc. [This book] give[s] military members critical insight... Highly recommended reading. The Friday Review Of Defense Literature Chuev's book...demonstrates the psychological and moral emptiness of the Stalinist clique-half true believes, half paranoid rogues-and shows how wholeheartedly they assisted the dictator in his criminal actions. Orbis Molotov Remembers is an important historical document which cannot be ignored by anyone who wishes to understand the mental climate of the Soviet regime. -- Robert V. Daniels The Russian Review [This book] provide[s] valuable material for objective historians. The New Leader [This book] is an unusually in-depth penetration of Kremlin politics and the Russian political psyche. Bookwatch [I]t is both significant and fascinating. The Economist An important resource for future Soviet studies, Molotov's words also provide a mesmerizing and chilling chronicle of how the Marxist dream mutated into the Soviet nightmare-and of how power, once again, corrupted absolutely. Kirkus Reviews [This book is] a quite fascinating self-portrait of a very bad man, an ideologue with a deformed morality all his own and a heart of stone. The Wall Street Journal This chilling memoir by an unregenerate Stalinist constitutes a major first-hand source on Kremlin politics during the Lenin-Stalin-Khrushchev era. Publishers Weekly Indispensable for all Soviet history collections. Library Journal
