513 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Pictorial endpapers, colour and b&w photographs, maps, decorations. "....not just a travel book, nor is it just Russia, or Russia Now. It is a revelation of the Communist Way, the Other Way in this divided world. It is a journey in understanding via not only Leningrad and Moscow, Kiev and such cities of Soviet Asia as Sukhara, Alma-Ata, and - Samarkand, but via the extraordinary essential history, via the Men from Hell - the Tartars, via the Czars of All the Russias (terrible Ivan, giant Peter, Catherine, the idiots), via Karl Marx, Rasputin, the Revolutions, Lenin (the real Lenin), Stalin (his evil documented). It answers Why/How/What is Communism? and What is Russia Really Li ke? The answers are clear, perceptive, disturbing, and without commitment except to the truth about this astonishing society where atheists keep Communist Commandments that point the problem of the Two Moralities, Purtians frown at stretch - p a n t s , h otels are barless, and rich writers carless. The Party Plan for rentless flats and fareless trains gives food for thought. And you are richly entertained when the author takes you to the Kremlin, to people at home, to the ballet a t th e Bo ls ho i, in to Red Square for the feting of the spacemen. And down to the republics of Tajik, Uzbek, Kazakh, in a journey so different and so illuminating." Very light browning to fore-edge of textblock, very faint foxing marks on board s, mi no r w rin kli ng a t t op/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, very light rubbing, a few tiny foxing marks on inside surface. Very Good/Very Good-
