Gulag: A History

Gulag - Anne Applebaum hmm the daughter of the top white-shoe law firm in D.C. and a curator at Corcoran; a product of Sidwell Friends School, Yale (B.A., 1986), a Marshall Scholar (LSE, 1987), studies at Oxford, works for the Economist and marries the Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs.


in other words, the purest pure product of the Establishment dedicates her considerable intellect to...

the evils of that evil country, the Soviet Union.

well, it's an impressive write. almost 900 pages or whatever. it's just unsurprising shall we say that somebody born into pure establishment finds 'foreigners do evil things.'

4/5 definitive piece of scholarship. what an odd choice for intellectual specialization
