Were going to cleanse Russia once and for all he wrote to Stalin, whose job it was to oversee the deportation.

Through journals, letters, memoirs, and personal accounts, Lesley Chamberlain creates a rich portrait of these banished thinkers and their families. She describes the world they left behind, the émigré communities they were forced to join, and the enduring power of the works they produced in exile.
