Authors on deck, live and recorded: Paul Gregory discusses his book, "Politics, Murder and Love in Stalin's Kremlin: The Story of Nikolai Bukharin and Anna Larina." The forceful, compelling book often reads like a screenplay. According to Stanford history Professor Norman Naimark. In the summer of 1925, the 11-year-old Anna Larina wrote a poem to poem to the Bolshevik leader Nikolai Bukharin, a kindly friend of the family, concluding: "Without you I am always blue." Her stepfather, another high Bolshevik official, encouraged her to deliver it to Bukharin personally. Author Paul Gregory "tells this painful tale using newly accessible Politburo and Central Committee materials that document the Stalinists' assaults on Bukharin and his desperate attempts to defend himself." Mathew Stein is talks about his book "When Technology Fails." Stein, provides something for everyone, from folks who just want to help their families when disaster strikes, to the go-it-alone survivalist, to the eco-minded person who wishes to tread more lightly on the earth, whatever the future may hold.
