"This lush volume by David King is a fascinating and sobering account of the rewriting of history and the willful creation of myths through the falsification of images in the Soviet Union during the Stalin era. A priceless collection. "-The New York Times
"The Commissar Vanishes provides vivid, tragic, and at times comic evidence of the dictator's determination to manipulate even his country's memory. "-The Wall Street Journal
