LAND OF THE RUSSIAN PEOPLE

An excellent book of a great nation, in three parts, each distinct, but neatly tied together into a masterful whole. First a fascinating trip through Siberia choosing cities to illustrate the highlights of terrain, population, peoples, history, climate, speech and progress -- Moscow, Leningrad, Kiev, Tbilisi. Then a clear, vivid, colorful panorama of the country's history. Lastly we are made aware of the Soviet system under which the Union now lives and which is contrasted with life in former days. A worthy companion to Anna Louise Strong's Peoples of the U. S. S. R. (Macmillan; P.4), and, if not as dramatic nor achieving such heights, nonetheless a splendid balance. You can't miss if you read both. Older groups, too.
