The People of Great Russia

By Geoffrey Gorer and John Rickman
Chanticleer, 1950
235 pp. $3.00

Mr. Gorer's provocative thesis is that if you scratch a Russian you find an angry, frustrated infant whose early swaddling has left a permanent mark on his character and his society. Dr. Rickman's contribution is a series of exceptionally vivid sketches of Russian peasant life from the point of view of a village medical officer.
