I CHANGE WORLDS by Anna Louise Strong

Really exciting reading, not only for the new light on Russia under the Communistic regime, but because of the singular clarity of the unfolding of a radical in the making. A sheltered and conventional childhood and adolescence, a temperament dominated by the need for assurance of love and companionship and understanding, a normal American education -- and suddenly, the budding radical, seeking a way to tell the world of her discoveries, the full-fledged Socialist in Seattle at its stormiest, the awakening to a realization that in Russia she had a chance to see her theories put to the acid test. Then the long and bitter struggle to build a new self, to see that the power of American efficiency meant nothing, that a merging of self in the interest's of the group was essential to the remarking of an American into a Communist in the service of Russia. An important book, from the editor of the Moscow Daily News, sure of wide publicity. Watch it.
