Pressestimmen"The book is noteworthy for its evenhandedness; it does not dramatize Shostakovich's problems with the bureaucracy but makes clear how those problems affected the composer's life and the creation of his music. . . . Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals." - Choice
