Maurice Isserman, the James L. Ferguson Professor of History, dissects the collapse of the Soviet Empire in “Reds, Menaced - Taking measure of the unlamented socialist paradise, twenty years after its demise,” the lead feature article in the December/January issue of Bookforum magazine. Isserman discusses the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc countries in a review of three newly published books that address the topic. They include Hungarian-born British journalist Victor Sebestyen's Revolution 1989, Oxford University historian David Priestland's The Red Flag and Russian historian and novelist Constantine Pleshakov’s There Is No Freedom Without Bread!
