Review

"I had almost given up hope that any American could depict the true face of Russia and Soviet rule. In David Satter's Age of Delirium, the world has received a chronicle of the calvary of the Russian people under communism that will last for generations." Vladimir Voinovich, author of The Life and Extraordinary Adventures of Private Ivan Chonkin "Spellbinding.... Gives one a visceral feel for what it was like to be trapped by the communist system." Jack Matlock, Washington Post "Satter deserves our gratitude.... He is an astute observer of people, with an eye for essential detail and for human behaviour in a universe wholly different from his own experience in America." Walter Laqueur, Wall Street Journal "Every page of this splendid and eloquent and impassioned book reflects an extraordinarily acute understanding of the Soviet system." Jacob Heilbrunn, Washington Times"

Product Description

The first state in history to be based explicitly on atheism, the Soviet Union endowed itself with the attributes of God. In this book, David Satter shows through individual stories what it meant to construct an entire state on the basis of a false idea, how people were forced to act out this fictitious reality, and the tragic human cost of the Soviet attempt to remake reality by force.
