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 6¾" - 7¾" tall
