Viac o knihe

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Gulag comes a major new work of historical and moral reckoning: the story of life behind the Iron Curtain.

Once the Nazis were defeated in 1945, the people of Central and Eastern Europe expected to recover the lives they had led before 1939. Instead, they found themselves subjected to a tyranny that was in many ways as inhuman as the one which they had just escaped. This book explains how Communism was imposed on these previously free societies in the decade after the end of the Second World War. Applebaum describes, in calm but devastating detail, how political parties, the church, the media, young people's organisations - the institutions of civil society on every level - were all quickly eviscerated. Ranging widely across new archival material and many sources unknown in English, she follows the communists' tactics as they bullied, threatened and murdered their way to power. She also chronicles individual lives to show the rapid choices people had to make - to fight, to flee, or to collaborate.

Within a remarkably short period after the end of the war, Eastern Europe had been ruthlessly Stalinised. Iron Curtain is a brilliant history of a brutal period in European history, but also a reminder of how fragile free societies are, and how vulnerable they can be to the predations of determined and unscrupulous enemies.

Názor čitateľa
Vyborna kniha o historii vzniku jednej z najhorsich masinerii v historii modernej Europy. Kniha sa zameriava na Polsko, Madarsko a NDR, ale v podstate ide o skutocnosti, ktore su aplikovatelne aj na CSR ci Rumunsko, ktore su spolu s Juhoslaviou spominane okrajovo. Clovek sa zhrozi pri pomysleni na to, aki su ludia zranitelni, zmanipulovatelni, zastrasitelni. Autorka siaha na uroven Paula Johnsona. Čítaj viac
