Notes:
Originally published: U.S.: Doubleday
In the years just before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall, conservative politicians and intellectuals across Europe and America celebrated a great achievement, felt a common purpose and, very often, forged personal friendships. The euphoria quickly evaporated, the common purpose and centre ground gradually disappeared and eventually - as this book compellingly relates - the relationships soured too. Anne Applebaum traces a familiar history in an unfamiliar way, looking at the trajectories of individuals caught up in the public events of the last three decades. When politics become polarized, which side do you back? If you are a journalist, an intellectual, a civic leader, how do you deal with the re-emergence of authoritarian or nationalist ideas in your country?

Book:Red famine, Stalin's war on Ukraine:2018 Book
Author: Applebaum, Anne
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Penguin Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: UK: Allen Lane, 2017 Anne Applebaum's books have explained the history of Russia and Eastern Europe as compellingly as any other historian. Based on a mass of previous untranslated documents and hundreds of testimonies, Anne Applebaum's 'Red Famine' tells the story of the Bolshevik war on Ukraine, from the brief moment of Ukrainian independence in 1917 to Stalin's deliberately engineered famine in 1932-33. That genocide killed nearly five million people, destroyed the national aspirations of Ukraine for two generations and has real echoes in the politics of the present.
xxviii, 481 pages, 24 unnumbered pages of plates, illustrations (black and white), maps (black and white) ; 20 cm (pbk)
