I can't even remember when I started this book. A self-described "saga of the Russian Revolution," it's as monumental and as sprawling as the enormous apartment building at its heart. A work of history to rival the classics of Russian literature.
I thought this was a concise, accessible read. If you already own a dog-eared copy of "Are Prisons Obsolete?" or have a pen pal through Black and Pink, then this book will be preaching to the choir. However, if you have no idea what those things are but do think that there must be a better way of handling social problems than just sending the police in, this book is a great place to start.
