MEDIA REVIEWS

"A first-rate book that explains, better than anything else in print, the origins and inner workings of the Stalinist language culture. Gorham breaks new ground, writing with zest and elegance as he tells a fascinating story." Victoria Bonnell, University of California

"A rare thing indeed, a wholly original work of scholarship. Gorham's work is truly outstanding."
James von Geldern, Macalester College"
