The Red Tsar


Nikita Khrushchev was a statesman and reformer who brought Russia and the world to the brink of catastrophe. Stalin’s Great Terror, de-Stalinization and the worst crises of the Cold War are closely linked with Khrushchev's name.

Stalin, shoe-banging Khrushchev, now Putin? We lived through it all.

P.S. If you have a year of Sundays with nothing else to do, you may wish to read these: "Memoirs of Nikita Khrushchev, Volume 1" and "Volume 3" (still searching for Volume 2). Perhaps this book, written by his son Sergei, is more digestible. And there is also "Khrushchev Remembers".
