    Russia was one of the great allies of the West during World War II, but just a few decades later, Western opinion shifted, transforming Russia into the archenemy of the Cold War. In 'Anti-Communist Manifestos,' author John V. Fleming argues that this shift in perception was largely a result of four bestselling books that focused on the scope and horror of crimes committed by the Soviet empire against its enemies and citizens: 'Out of the Night,' 'Darkness at Noon,' 'I Chose Freedom,' and 'Witness.' Fleming examines the dramatic effects of these books on the authors themselves, Russia, and the opinions of readers around the world. This is an insightful and compelling study.
