The house of government : a saga of the Russian Revolution

Slezkine, Yuri, 1956-2017
Books
Drawing on letters, diaries, and interviews, and featuring hundreds of rare photographs, 'The House of Government' weaves together biography, literary criticism, architectural history, and fascinating new theories of revolutions, millennial prophecies, and reigns of terror. The result is an unforgettable human saga of a building that, like the Soviet Union itself, became a haunted house, forever disturbed by the ghosts of the disappeared.
