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.
