|Review Quote*||Praise for Stephen F. Cohen's Books |
Bukharin and The Bolshevik Revolution: A Political Biography
"This magnificent book will come to be regarded … as one of the two or three really outstanding studies in the history of the Soviet Union of the past 25 years."-The New York Review of Books
Rethinking the Soviet Experience
"[Cohen] clarifies Russian issues better than anyone has in the past decade."-Cleveland Plain Dealer
Sovieticus: American Perceptions and Soviet Realities
"A model of scholarly journalism, sound and wonderfully readable."-Publishers Weekly
Failed Crusade: America and the Tragedy of Post-Communist Russia
"A blistering, brilliant, and deeply felt critique of America's decade-long daydream of a Russia in transition."-Kirkus Reviews
The Victims Return
"A striking memoir … Russians today are inheritors of an unspeakably immense crime, and Cohen engages fully - and personally - with the debate on the way they continue to grapple with their Stalinist legacy."-The New Yorker
Soviet Fates and Lost Alternatives
"An extraordinarily rich book …an absolutely vital beginning point for anyone interested in a serious study of political and foreign policy developments involving Russia."-Slavic Review
"Cohen's ideas about Russia, which once got him invited to Camp David to advise a sitting president, now make him the most controversial expert in the field."-The Chronicle Review
