New book, 876 pages. Ask many Westerners, and not a few Russians, and they are likely to recall Khrushchev as a crude, ill-educated clown who banged his shoe at the United Nations. But the short, thick-set man with small, piercing eyes, protruding ears, and apparently unquenchable energy wasn't a Soviet joke even though he figures in so many of them. Rather, he was a complex man whose story combines triumph and tragedy for his country as well as himself.
