"Timothy Snyder has already shown that he has a masterly intellectual grasp of complex issues such as the identity problems of Central and Eastern Europe. He now demonstrates that he can tell a good tale: lucidly, briskly and seductively. The Red Prince delves into areas of history with which most western readers will be unfamiliar. In consequence, it educates as it informs as it entertains." -- Norman Davies, author of No Simple Victory: World War II in Europe 1939-1945
"Timothy Snyder is not only one of the leading authorities on Central European history writing today, he is also an elegant stylist, with a talent for storytelling--a wonderful combination." -- Anne Applebaum, author of the Pulitzer prize-winning Gulag
"Timothy Snyder is one of the most remarkable and original historians of Eastern Europe of his generation. His work commands our attention." -- Timothy Garton Ash, author of Free World and The Polish Revolution
