“I Told You So, You Fucking Fools”

or … that’s what Robert Conquest reportedly wanted to call the new edition of his book The Great Terror: A Reassessment when it came out with updated information – information which basically not only vindicated Conquest (who had been pilloried for years), but MORE than proved his case. In almost every situation, he had actually underestimated the number of millions killed by Stalin. Here’s one of my posts on The Great Terror (and an excerpt from the book) – it’s one of the most important books of the 20th century. Conquest is a poet, too.

Here’s a lengthy awesome piece in The New Criterion about The Great Terror – great stuff.

I would totally pick up a book called I Told You So, You Fucking Fools.
