About the book: Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the child of a Stalin or Hitler, a Mao or Castro, or Pol Pot? National Review’s Jay Nordlinger asked himself this. The result is Children of Monsters: An Inquiry into the Sons and Daughters of Dictators, an astonishing survey of the progeny of 20 dictators. Some were loyalists who admired their father. Some actually succeed as dictator. A few were critics, even defectors. What they have in common, Nordlinger shows, is the prison house of tainted privilege and the legacy of dubious deference.
About the author: J ay Nordlinger is a senior editor of National Review and a book fellow of the National Review Institute. He is the author of Children of Monsters: An Inquiry into the Sons and Daughters of Dictators, published by Encounter. His previous book was published by Encounter, too: Peace, They Say, a history of the Nobel Peace Prize. In his journalism, Nordlinger writes about a variety of subjects, including politics, foreign affairs, and the arts. He is the music critic of The New Criterion.
