1 Crankshaw, Edward Khrushchev's Russia
Baltimore Penguin 1959 Reprint Edition Mass Market Paperback Good+ 

Minor edgewear, PO name inside. Text is starting to yellow, but clean and unmarked.

From the cover: "This book deals neither with the Russia of the tourist nor with that much discussed enigma, the Russia of the conference room. There is a third country, Khrushchev's Russia, too seldom seen for what it is, too often confused with the mask it wears in the world arena. The author does not discuss Russian foreign policy, or (except in a brief account of the war and of the re-shuffling after Stalin's death) Russian history. He is concerned with the material progress and internal aims that have established themselves under Khrushchev, with the targets set to bring the country level with America in both per capita and total production, with Khrushchev the man (whom the author sees primarily as a superb practical administrator), with the new young Russians and their mental climate, an with the inside story of the Pasternak affair, of which he gives a fascinating account. The result is a book not about an international symbol, but about a reality."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall

"The Shadow of the Winter Palace is a panoramic, illuminating account of a dynasty in decline-but it is much more than that. Edward Crankshaw's brilliant history of Russia under the last four Tsars shows how that colorful and mysterious country had within it the seeds not only of revolution but also of many aspects of modern Russia which we are apt to think of as peculiar to the Soviet state."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
