Retour De L'u. R. S. S
Retour De L'u. R. S. S
By André Gide
Nouvelle Revue Française, 1936, pp

A much-discussed book. The distinguished French author, long a supporter of the Communist régime, still looks with favor on many of its social policies but confesses his deep depression at the spirit of conformity which he found prevailing everywhere in Soviet Russia. He admits that except for Germany there is no country where there is less personal liberty for the individual.
