Orlando Figes' "The Whisperers" provides a shocking insight into life in the old Soviet Union as ordinary people lived it day in and day out. In down to earth terms, the author details how the socialist establishment subverted family life with the goal of producing a compliant populace. Reading this book makes you appreciate the momentous nature of Russia's emergence from Communist tyrrany.
