I love the way some reviewers demand objectivity or even suggest that Pipes is a Nazi. By any chance, are they suggesting that one should remove all commentary and reflection on the events and marginalize one's writing to a summary of facts? If anything, Pipes deserves an ovation for taking on contemporary scholarship which recycles neo-Marxist dogmas and indulges in an occasional doublethink. If you want to look at the Russian Revolution from a genuinely human perspective - this is the book.
