I came across this recent posting by B. R. Myers revoking his
recommendation for Charles Armstrong's *Tyranny of the Weak* (2013)*.* Myers'
revocation is, for me, unprecedented.

Myers compares Armstrong's *Tyranny *with Balazs Szalontai's *Kim Il Sung
in the Khrushchev Era* (2005)*. *He gives detailed examples why he can't
support the book.  If there is any truth to what Myers says then it is all
very disturbing since Armstrong's books are widely admired and used.

I wonder what others think.  Myers' post can be found at
