KIRKUS REVIEW

Radek is a Polish Jew, a foremost propagandist of the Soviet Union, an authority on foreign fiction, a dramatic critic, linguist and copious writer, originator of possibly 85% of the jests and anecdotes of Moscow today. This is a collection of brief essays on Stalin, Lloyd George, Ebert Woodrow Wilson; essays on religion, on women and children under the Soviet, on the Intellectuals, inside and outside of Russia. All in all giving a brief but keen insight into the New Republic and its leaders' views. Ironic, witty, satiric -- even in translation, Radek proves his rank as a leader of literary worth.
