The New Russians

The New Russians Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"For three years, Mr. Smith was stationed in Russia as Moscow Bureau Chief for The New York Times, and he has emerged from that experience with a book as rich in anecdote, information, and intelligence as a reader could wish. Cheerful and very well-written, The Russians seems to span its subject both geographically and culturally with a curiosity unimpaired by prejudice or linguistic ignorance, and the result is a picture of a society as lively and perhaps as horrifying as a novel by Dostoevsky." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)

Review:

"Hedrick Smith is the John Gunther of this generation. Like the 'Inside ...' books of an earlier year, The Russians and now The New Russians is a spirited travelogue with an overlay of political chronology. Mr. Smith likes the Russians, has talked to hundreds of them, and his earnest desire to inform is highly commendable. Only cranky specialists would complain about the numerous petty errors and omissions. This book is what Americans like best: an easily digestible commodity handsomely packaged." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)

Description:
