Product description


"Let no one who wishes insight into the baffling complexities of contemporary Russia lay aside this book lightly. It abounds in revealing, often comical, incidents of daily life, interlarded with inside' stories on the origin and development of outstanding news stories such as that of the famine of 1932-1933, which have been instrumental in shaping world opinion about the U.S.S.R. Not least interesting is the chain of seemingly incredible events which led to the author's expulsion from the country."-Atlantic
