Editorial Reviews

Robert Taylor
Views From the Other Shore presents a fascinating discourse couched in terms of exceptional lucidity. Few books can actually change one's perspective on the world, but Kelly's stakes a claim among that select company.
&$151; Boston Globe
Michael Scammell
Everything Kelly produces is of interest, and her best essays are sheer delight. Packed with information, densely argued, clearly written, they remind us of that wonderful intoxication with ideas that is the hallmark of the Russian genius and that has marked Kelly herself to such good effect. She has performed a signal service by inviting Russia's thinkers back into the mainstream of political discourse. -- NY Times Book Review
