"These casual caricatures with marginal notes and private comments by Politburo members offer an unprecedented opportunity to look into the real thinking and feelings of the Bolshevik leaders."-Albert Nenarokov, Russian State Archive of Social and Political History -- Albert Nenarokov "Aside from the intrinsic interest of these sketches as humor, and even as art, they also have value as a historical resource, providing unique insight into how Bolsheviks saw themselves and each other."-Arch Getty, University of California, Los Angeles -- Arch Getty "An absolute winner!"-Mark L. von Hagen, Columbia University -- Mark L. von Hagen "Who knew? That Stalin and his cronies whiled away their time in the Kremlin drawing the telling caricatures of each other that fill this unexpected, remarkable book. That some sketches are superb, while others are simply obscene. That some drawings, along with their captions, commentaries and dedications, give no hint of the bloodbath to come. That others, including one showing the people's commissar of finance hanging by his testicles, with Stalin's note relishing the procedure, are all too indicative."-William Taubman, Bertrand Snell Professor of Political Science, Amherst College, and author of Khrushchev: The Man and His Era -- William Taubman
