“I had almost given up hope that any American could depict the true face of Russia and Soviet rule. In David Satter’s Age of Delirium, the world has received a chronicle of the cavalry of the Russian people under communism that will last for generations.” – Vladimir Voinovich, author of “The Life and Extraordinary Adventures of Private Ivan Chonkin”.
“Spellbinding. . . . Gives one a visceral feel for what it was like to be trapped by the communist system.”-Jack Matlock, Washington Post.
“Satter deserves our gratitude. . . . He is an astute observer of people, with an eye for essential detail and for human behavior in a universe wholly different from his own experience in America.” – Walter Laqueur, Wall Street Journal.
“Every page of this splendid and eloquent and impassioned book reflects an extraordinarily acute understanding of the Soviet system.” – Jacob Heilbrunn, Washington Times.
