YOU'LL NEVER LOOK AT HISTORY THE SAME WAY AGAIN... - David Remnick has given us two things: a chilling historical account of the tremendous fall of the Soviet Union, and the loss of hope of its terrorized people, ...and a beautifully written detective story, a very personal touch that reflects a deep understanding of humanity; an authenticity only available through hundreds of interviews. It's meeting history face to face with all its cruelty and abuse jump out at you ever so subtly. It is almost reminiscent of that simplicity that was once bestowed to us through Tolstoy's humble genius. It is a story unlike any other, taking place all over the Soviet Empire. And best of all, Remnick has given the reader a chance to ride in the shoes of the actual Soviet people, ...indeed recreating history yet so much more. The condition that these people lived in is comparable to the Nazi Holocaust. The periodic discovery of mass murder sites keeps contributing to this effect. The Shoah makes an effort "to never forget,"...
The Secret behind the Moscow Coup - Remnick's book is easily the most graphic and accurate account in English of the Gorbachev years between 1985 and 1991. It is unlikely to be surpassed. I judge his accuracy from his account of the August 1991 putsch, which is excellent given the information that was available. As the renegade agent that triggered the June 'constitutional coup', KGB Chief Kryuchkov's August 6th decision to draft coup documents AND the August 14th decision to again start drafting the documents, I have referred to Remnick in my research on the coup and the events that lead up to it. Suffice it to say that Kryuchkov's final decision on August 14th was triggered by the Bulgarian President, who fired the two KGB appointees at the head of his intelligence service, at my instigation. I had disclosed to him some intelligence secrets that compromised both the KGB and the British MI6, and proved that his intelligence chiefs were communist puppets, which was hardly surprising since Presidents Bush and...
The Inevitability of Democracy and Freedom - Remnick's prose makes this history/political science book both readable and entertaining. Arguing that the country's downfall was due to the Soviet leaderships' ongoing assault against its country's collective historical memory and it's feeble attempts to give the country just enough perestroika and glastnost to keep it at bay are chronicled in a series of chapters or themes. Ironically, the limited attempts by Gorbachev to instill some democratic themes was just enough to whet the populace's appetite for more and set the country on a road it could not turn back from. Interestingly, Remnick argues that Gorbachev was at heart, a true communist who only wanted to make adjustments, not change the whole system. One gleans from this whole book that in a modern world, democratization of the body politic is inevitable, once its processes are set in motion. Though the author focuses very little on outside influences contributing to the USS's demise, i.e. the cold war or "evil...
