In This Review

By Emil Lengyel
Random House, 1943, 416 pp

The author spent two years in Siberia during the First World War as an Austrian prisoner, and has now recently revisited the area to observe the changes wrought by the Soviet régime. As in the case of his other books -- "The Danube," "Turkey" and "Dakar" -- one could wish for less impressionism and more concrete information about factories, mines, railroads and other rather dull but highly important things.
