Winner of the Pulitzer Prize 

Chosen by The New York Times Book Review and Time as one of the best books of the year, Lenin’s Tomb has the moral authority of Nadezhda Mandelstam and the narrative power of John Reed. This monumental account of the collapse of the Soviet Union combines the vision of the best historical scholarship with the immediacy of eyewitness journalism. Out of his years as Moscow correspondent for The Washington Post, Remnick has created a narrative that arcs from the rise of glasnost to the start of the post-Communist age in 1992. This edition includes a new Afterword by the author.

“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.
