The Great Terror at 40.

Robert Conquest in Red Square, May 1990.

Robert Conquest's The Great Terror is probably the most important piece of non-fiction of the second half of the twentieth century. It records in painstaking detail for all to see, the evil that was Soviet communism. Anyone who wants to understand the terrible cost of totalitarianism should begin with this book.
