I DREAMT REVOLUTION

After a self-imposed silence of 17 years because he feared reprisals against friends in Russia, the author, a Ukranian-born American citizen, tells the bloody tale of the Soviet purges in the middle '80's, and winds up with a plea that Americans protect themselves against Stalin, whom he feels is hourly planning to attack us, while seemingly in the midst of negotiations. There is little new material here, but what scraps there are, such as the position of the once mighty Bukharin as puppet editor- plus the different slant- make the reading of this worthwhile to those who relish the ""confessions"" of ex-revolutionaries.
