Thanks for posting this. I picked up a book in a junk store titled “Stalin History of a Dictator” published in 1971. Lots of interesting stuff in there, especially about WW2.
And when you read on x it gets worse...
“Bukovskys book about the story that these documents tell, Jugement à Moscou, has been published in French, Russian, and a few other Slavic languages, but not in English. Random House bought the manuscript and, in Bukovskys words, tried to force me to rewrite the whole book from the liberal left political perspective. Bukovsky replied that due to certain peculiarities of my biography I am allergic to political censorship. The contract was canceled, the book was never published in English, and no other publisher has shown interest in it. Neither has anyone wanted to publish EUSSR, a pamphlet by Stroilov and Bukovsky about the Soviet roots of European integration. In 2004, a very small British publisher did print an abbreviated version of the pamphlet; it, too, passed unnoticed.”
You’re welcome Rusty. I have little trust in books after the 50s’ but jewels are to be found after that period.
