Inside the Soviet Empire: The Myth and the Reality
By Nora Beloff
Times Books, 1980, 185 pp.
A well-known British journalist's adventures on a trip to less travelled parts of the U.S.S.R. in search of an answer to the question: How does Moscow hold its multinational empire together? She does not give us the answer but provides a lively account of her experience with the realities of Soviet life, including the ministrations of the KGB, which detained and interrogated her at length before letting her leave the country.
