    Excellent book Fascinating insights about the man and Russia Khrushchev was born in 1894 and he was an eye witness to the Bolshevik Revolution, the two world wars, the cold war, the crisis in Berlin and the crisis in Cuba A man of bluster, energy and high hopes for the communist dream, he helped bring the USSR down when he condemned Stalin, after his death, for the atrocities and false imprisonments of millions he suspected of standing in his way Damage to the image of Stalin was something c Excellent book Fascinating insights about the man and Russia Khrushchev was born in 1894 and he was an eye witness to the Bolshevik Revolution, the two world wars, the cold war, the crisis in Berlin and the crisis in Cuba A man of bluster, energy and high hopes for the communist dream, he h...

    It s debatable whether or not Nikita Khrushchev ever banged his shoe at the United Nations Assembly in 1960 There are photos of him pounding the lectern with his fists, and reports of him waving the shoe, but some say he never smacked it down The irony, as William Taubman points out in this Pulitzer Prize winning biography, is that the young Khrushchev was tormented by his lack of shoes as a child, and that the moment that came to define him in the history as a rustic vulgarian, also demonstra It s debatable whether or not Nikita Khrushchev ever banged his shoe at the United Nations Assembly in 1960 There are photos of him pounding the lectern with his fists, and reports of him waving the shoe, but some say he never smacked it down The irony, as William Taubman points out in this Pulitzer Prize winning biography, is that the young Khrushchev was tormented by his lack of shoes as a child, and that the moment that came to define him in the history as a rustic vulgarian, also demonstrated to Khrushchev just how far he had come from his roots Waving a real shoe at the UN How high he had risen Khrushchev was the energetic son of a poor peasant family on the Russian border with Ukraine, who moved southwest into the Donbas region to find metalwork around the coal mines In his early years, Khrushchev wished nothingthan to be a middle class mechanical engineer, and for his whole life he...

    For many of us Russian common man Nikita Khrushchev was the first human face of Soviet leadership Lenin a grainy figure from newsreels or a corpse on display in a tomb Josef Stalin a phantom figure seen with FDR and Churchill in pictures In one news clip breath Khrushchev was grinning gap toothed from one jug ear to the other, and in the next moment slamming his shoe...

    After p 180I am not sure that I can read muchof this book To be sure Taubman s book is a splendid example of the biographer s art and craft, fully deserving of the aclaim and prizes, including the Pulitzer, that various critics bestowed, etc., etc It s just that the subject is so very uninteresting I have read tens of biographies of Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky, and Bukharin, among the many Old Bolsheviks whose fascinating lives are told and documented in wonderfully engaging and powerful bo After p 180I am not sure that I can read muchof this book To be sure Taubman s book is a splendid example of the biographer s art and craft, fully deserving of the aclaim and prizes, including the Pulitzer, that various critics bestowed, etc., etc It s just that the subject is so very uninteresting I have read tens of biographies of Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky, and Bukharin, among the many Old Bolsheviks whose fascinating lives are told and documented in wonderfully engaging and powerful books.I was entirely surprised that K s life could have been so dull This is NOT to say that his life was uneventful, because it was It is to say, however, that the biography of one of Stalin s creatures, whom he advanced as he liquidated the old Bolshevicks and with them the Bolshevick Party and state, is singularly one dimensional That dimension, of course, was the gamesm...

    Khruschev spent all his life trying to get out of the Vozhd s shadow Stalin made him what he was, and, until the end of his life, he ran from his legacy, while at the same time continuing to indulge in many of its ways For a very long time Kruschev has been a walk on character in the Stalin biographies particularly egregiously in Volkogonov s Autopsy of an Empire , where everyone after Stalin is a let down Stalin was so exceptional and I m not saying this as praise rather the opposite t Khruschev spent all his life t...

    It seems ungenerous to criticize William Taubman s Khrushchev, not least because it s about the only Khrushchev biography in English to speak of Still, it is important to explore what this book is not it is not a portrait of Soviet life it is not an exploration of Communism though there s plenty of information on that topic and it is not, alas, a particularly great straight biography of Nikita Khrushchev The book is disappointingly thin in sections where one hopes it will be rich with h It seems ungenerous to criticize William Taubman s Khrushchev, not least because it s about the only Khrushchev biography in English to speak of Still, it is important to explore what this book is not it is not a portrait of Soviet life it is not an exploration of Communism though there s plenty of information on that topic and it is not, alas, a particularly great straight biography of Nikita Khrushchev The book is disappointingly thin in sections where one hopes it will be rich with hitherto unknown detail particularly in Khrushchev s war years as the supremo in Soviet Ukraine Those war years lasted beyond the expulsion of the Nazis in 1944, well into the 1950s as the western Ukraine was suppressed and cleared of its nationalist insurgency This was almost certainly the most brutal and, indeed, Stalinist period of Khrushchev s long career and so it deservesa...

    This book provides a very interesting portrait of a world leader I vaguely remember Taubman provides insights into Khruschev s behavior and personality that helped me make sense of his place in the history of the Soviet Union Khruschev was both a product of his times and a tablesetter for some of the developments that came after him I was rather disappointed, however, that the book does not contain a detailed account of the coup that ousted Khruschev Other than that, this is a very compreh This book provides a very interesting portrait of a world leader I vaguely remember Taubman provides insights into Khruschev s b...
