Originally published in 1932, the author, a Polish journalist, in this book directs his hostility against the fundamentals of Bolshevism, but nonetheless achieves impartiality. With regard to Russian culture, Soviet Russia appears to the author as the home of an almost Victorian puritanism. Daily life under the Bolsheviks is discussed, as is the meeting on a train with a man who claimed to have been present at the murder of the Imperial Family.
