What People are Saying About This

Michael D. Gordin

"An impressive synthesis of a massive quantity of sources. Wolfe writes forcefully and clearly with occasional sparkles of wit, while managing to navigate a balanced course through some rather heated historiographical disputes. She succeeds brilliantly."
