In Anger and Pity
In Anger and Pity
By Robert Magidoff
Doubleday, 1949, 278 pp

Having left Russia at the age of 15, Magidoff returned there to pass 12 years as Moscow representative of the Associated Press and the NBC. Though expelled last year on a trumped-up charge of espionage, his account of life in the Soviet Union is remarkably even-handed. The reader will learn more here about the everyday life of the average Russian than in most books on that country.
