London: Jonathan Cape, 1976. When the author of this remarkable book arrives in Moscow as an American graduate student, he soon comes face to face with a country where the terms of his trade,'paradigms', party structure and intergroup pressures no longer apply. The book is the reminiscences of what the author saw, heard and felt. It is reportage of his Russian friend's lives and of his observations. A small part of the "author's" note reads, "To modify Christopher Isherwood on his rendering of Berlin forty years ago, it is a record more of what happened than of what might have happened to me abroad." Blue boards with gilt to spine. Lovely photo jacket. A clean, square copy - no owner markings or inscriptions.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good.
