KIRKUS REVIEW

Journalism par excellence, for the essential spirit is there; and photography of the highest order under the most challenging circumstances. The result is this book, an account of the adventures and misadventures of America's premier newspaper photographer in Soviet Russia, and more than that, a living record of the experiment of ""building socialism."" Good reading, essentially journalese, to be sure, adventure and humor and keen observation and balanced judgment. And 80 photographs, many of them ""forbidden"" -- including the impossible, a photograph of Stalin.
