“[Iron Curtain is] exceptionally important, wise, perceptive, remarkably objective”
Historian and Washington Post columnist Anne Applebaum is one of the world’s leading intellectuals and an acknowledged expert on the Soviet era. Her bestselling study Gulag: A History of the Soviet Camps won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 2004 and her latest book, Iron Curtain, has been hailed as a masterpiece by reviewers.
