For over seventy years the Kremlin was the bastion of the all-powerful Soviet rulers. A great deal is known about the men who held millions of fates in their iron grip, yet little is known about the women#x97;the wives and mistresses#x97;who shared their lives. They took part in the Revolution and its aftermath, bore children, and suffered abuse; some were arrested and sent to Siberia, driven to suicide, or even murdered. In 1991 the KGB granted the author access to its secret files, which, together with the author's own research and interviews, provided the material for this book. Here for the first

Living souls by Dmitriĭ Bykov( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a world a few decades from now, Russia has lost its influence and descended into a farcical civil war. With an extreme right wing cult in power, racial tensions have divided the country into the Varangians those who consider themselves to be the original Aryan settlers of Russia and the Khazars, the liberals and Jews driven out of Moscow by recent events. Morale has reached an all time low as the brutality and pointlessness of the situation is becoming more and more apparent: what is left of the fighting now revolves around capturing and recapturing Degunino, a seemingly magical village with an abundance of pies, vodka and accommodating womenfolk. But there is also a third people timid, itinerant and on the brink of extinction who lay claim to Degunino and Russia as their homeland"--Page 4 of cover
Four plays by Karel Čapek( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Capek was one of the most original Czech writers of the 1920s and 30s whose works were the inspiration for much of the science fiction of Europe and America. Endlessly inventive and extraordinary prescient, full of humour and wit, his plays explore and defend man's humanity. This volume brings together fresh new translations of four of his most popular plays, relevant today more than ever. In R.U.R., the Robot - an idea Capek was the first to invent - gradually takes over all aspects of human existence except procreation; The Insect Play is a satirical fable in which beetles, butterflies and ants give dramatic form to different philosophies of life; The Makropulos Case (upon which Janacek based his opera) is a fantasy about human mortality, finally celebrating the average lifespan; The White Plague is a savage and anguished satire against fascist dictatorship and the virus of inhumanity."--BOOK JACKET
