              I used to bottle-feed my father's two bears. When my son was born, they were kept together. There were plenty of times when I got it wrong-the baby drank from the bear's bottle, and the bear from his. So when they fired me from the collective farm, I knew one thing: if I wanted t...o go on living, I had to find a bear. A brilliant, funny and heartbreaking account of people in formerly Communist countries who are nostalgic for how they used to live. For hundreds of years, Bulgarian Gypsies trained bears to dance, welcoming them into their families and taking them on the road to perform. In the early 2000s, after the fall of Communism, they were forced to release the bears into a wildlife refuge. But, even today, whenever the bears see a human, they still get up on their hind legs to dance. In the tradition of Ryszard Kapuscinski, award-winning Polish journalist Witold Szablowski tells remarkable stories of people throughout Eastern Europe and in Cuba who, like Bulgaria's dancing bears, are now free but long for when they were not. He describes hitchhiking through Kosovo as it declares independence, arguing with the guides at the Stalin Museum, and sleeping in London's Victoria Station alongside a homeless Polish woman. Dancing Bears is a fascinating portrait of social and economic upheaval, and a lesson in the challenges of freedom and the seductions of authoritarian rule.

              A chilling look from within the kitchen at the appetites of five of the twentieth century's most infamous dictators, by the acclaimed author of Dancing Bears What was Pol Pot eating while two million Cambodians were dying of hunger? Did Idi Amin really eat human flesh? And why wa...s Fidel Castro obsessed with one particular cow? Traveling across four continents, from the ruins of Iraq to the savannahs of Kenya, Witold Szablowski tracked down the personal chefs of five dictators known for the oppression and massacre of their own citizens: Iraq's Saddam Hussein, Uganda's Idi Amin, Albania's Enver Hoxha, Cuba's Fidel Castro, and Cambodia's Pol Pot--and listened to their stories over sweet-and-sour soup, goat-meat pilaf, bottles of rum, and games of gin rummy. Dishy, deliciously readable, and dead serious, How to Feed a Dictator provides a knife's-edge view of what it was like to be behind the scenes at some of the turning points of the last century.

              Inhuman Land: Searching for the Truth in Soviet Russia, 1941-1942 (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Main)

              In 1941, when Germany turned against the USSR, tens of thousands of Poles - men, women and children, starving, sickly and impoverished ? were released from Soviet prison camps, and allowed to join the Polish army being formed in the south of Russia. One of the survivors who made ...the difficult winter journey was painter and reserve officer J zef Czapski. Army commander-in-chief General Anders assigned Czapski the task of receiving the Poles arriving for military training, gathering accounts of what their fates had been, organizing education, culture, and news for the soldiers, and most importantly, investigating the disappearance of thousands of missing Polish officers. Blocked at every level by the Soviet authorities, Czapski was unaware that in April, 1940, the officers had been shot dead in Katyn forest, a crime for which Soviet Russia never accepted responsibility. Czapski's account of the years following his release from the camp, the formation of the Polish army, and its arduous trek through Central Asia and the Middle East to fight on the Italian front is rich in anecdotes about the suffering of the Poles in the USSR, quotations from the Polish poetry that sustained him and his companions, encounters with literary figures including Anna Akhmatova, and philosophical thoughts about the relationships between nationalities.
