This book by the chief Moscow correspondent of the Italian Communist paper L’Unita is well-written reportage. In an ingenious way it manages to be quite ‘independent’ and ‘critical’ of many aspects of Russian policy. These relate more however to the past under Stalin than to the present, and always to secondary aspects. In relation to the policies of the present rulers it is ‘orthodoxy’ itself.
