Review:

"One of the deans of American historians of Russia, Richard Pipes savors the pleasant taste of vindication. The opening of the Soviet archives has proved him right on almost every major issue including the central one, the criminality of the Bolshevik regime. Only a couple of dozen American historians, with not only their careers but also their very reasons for being at stake, continue to oppose him, calling his views 'totalitarian' and their own something wholesome which cannot, they declare, be reduced to labels. In this Concise History, Pipes presents a summary of the views he expressed in The Russian Revolution and The Bolshevik Regime. If he remains a bit strident at times, and so hostile to leftist intellectuals—Russian and Western—that one begins to feel just a wee bit of sympathy for them, he has the best of all arguments on his side: history as it was, and is." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
