This is chosen 16 times as a 'Book of the Year' - the top
non-fiction pick of 2012. "The best work of modern history I have
ever read". (A. N. Wilson, Financial Times). At the end of the
Second World War, the Soviet Union unexpectedly found itself in
control of a huge swathe of territory in Eastern Europe. Stalin and
his secret police set out to convert a dozen radically different
countries to a completely new political and moral system:
Communism. Anne Applebaum's landmark history of this brutal time
shows how societies were ruthlessly eviscerated by Communist
regimes, how opposition was destroyed and what life was like for
ordinary people who had to choose whether to fight, to flee or to
collaborate. A haunting reminder of how fragile freedom can be,
Iron Curtain is an exceptional work of historical and moral
reckoning. Anne Applebaum is a historian and journalist, a regular
columnist for the Washington Post and Slate, and the author of
several books, including Gulag: A History, which won the 2004
Pulitzer Prize for non-fiction. She is the Director of Political
Studies at the Legatum Institute in London, and she divides her
time between Britain and Poland, where her husband, Radek Sikorski,
serves as Foreign Minister.
