Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This ``diary'' of the ``three days that collapsed the empire'' serves as evidence that a Moscow book publisher can rival the speed of a U.S. house in producing an instant replay: three weeks after the abortive coup of Aug. 19-21, 1991, Progress had 50,000 copies of this book in the marketplace, as well as a 10-hour videotape of the events. To actively oppose the coup, the publisher joined with two independent Russian news services in compiling and distributing bulletins every two hours to people in Moscow's streets and Metro stations. In this compilation of those reports, we feel the building tension of events--``Motorized rifle unit stationed near Bolshoi Theatre. . . . Troops and military vehicles have assembled near the Russian Parliament building''; and we witness the resolve of the anti-putschists--``Armored vehicles tried to pass between the Manege and Alexander Gardens but were prevented by demonstrators. . . . Trucks with water cannons were attacked by demonstrators at Moscow University.'' The book may be only a footnote to history, but its eye-witness immediacy makes it a rousing document. (Sept.)
Library Journal
Brief wire-service announcements from two independent services (Russian Information Agency and Postfactum) were collected by Progress Publishers in Moscow to provide a moment-by-moment account of the events during the August 1991 coup from 4 a.m. (Moscow time) August 19th until 2 p.m. August 22. Many are date-lined Moscow and Leningrad, but reports from other cities are included. Even reports subsequently proven wrong are included. Unlike Mikhail Gorbachev's August Coup ( LJ 1/91), this account offers no commentary or interpretation, limiting itself to official statements--although it does include an introduction by Boris Yeltsin. It lacks the local color, background, and numerous photographs of CNN Reports: Seven Days That Shook The World ( LJ 2/15/92), and no annotations or explanatory notes are provided. Nevertheless, this is a valuable original source for readers seriously studying the coup.--Marcia L. Sprules, Council on Foreign Relations Lib., New York
