From the Publisher"Few historians have the courage to attack great subjects; fewer have the grasp to succeed. This is a book that lets the reader look into the face of one of the major social upheavels of history. . . . A People's Tragedy will do more to help us undersand the Russian Revolution than any other book I know."
—Eric Hobsbawm, The London Review of Books
"I doubt there is anyone in the world who knows the revolution as well as Figes does."
—Norman Stone, The Sunday Times (London)
"An engagingly written and well-researched book. . . . Will stand for some time as a standard of historical scholarship."
—Steven Merritt Miner, The New York Times Book Review
"Huge in scope, brilliant in vignette, dark and implacable in theme, it is a modern masterpiece."
—Andrew Marr, The Independent
