Prof. Yuri Slezkine’s First Book Since “The Jewish Century”


U.C. Berkeley professor of history Yuri Slezkine is the author of the important 2004 book The Jewish Century, which offered an illuminating perspective on the ethnic Jewish role in the Soviet state. I was recently wondering whatever happened to him since I hadn’t heard of him having a new book out since then.

But now he has a War and Peace length new book from Princeton University Press:

The House of Government: A Saga of the Russian Revolution
Yuri Slezkine

Hardcover | 2017 | $39.95 | £29.95 | ISBN: 9780691176949

1128 pp. | 6 x 9 1/4 | 416 b/w illus., 2 maps

It’s about the residents of the luxury apartment building kitty-corner across the river from the Kremlin (a.k.a. the House on the Embankment) that was reserved for the Bolshevist Inner Party, such as Slezkine’s ancestors.
