Pressestimmen

"An extensive and meticulous journey through Russian history... How have Russia's leaders taken a history that is often either 'difficult, contested, or fragmentary' and melded it to fit the pervading ideology of the day? With thorough research, including rare access to the Kremlin's dusty, permission-only archives, Merridale addresses this question and many more to weave an insightful, fascinating tale."
"--Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

"A comprehensive study of Moscow's walled city, for centuries a byword for power, secrecy, and cruelty... Russian visitors and social historians alike will benefit from Merridale's thoroughgoing research and lively writing."
"--Kirkus Reviews

""A well-done portrait... Merridale does an excellent job of integrating Russia's often tortured, bloody history, the actions of the rulers, and the building and rebuilding of the Kremlin."

"Merridale's extraordinary history of the red fortress mixes politics, history, architecture and biography to lay bare the secret heart of Russia's history... It is a delight to read, with pithy pen-portraits, poignant vignettes and mordant summaries of the twists and turns of fate and fortune... Merridale does a brilliant job of piecing together the clues from the past and evading the constraints of the present."
