Der Sowjetmensch

By Klaus Mehnert

Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt, 1958, 497 pp.

Klaus Mehnert, a leading German student of Soviet affairs, was born in Moscow and has made some 12 trips to the Soviet Union between 1929 and 1957. Out of this store of travel and experience he undertakes a substantial portrait of the Soviet man --his conditions of life, his interests and desires, his relation to the ruling order.
