Most interesting are Maclean's observations from trips in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Georgia. Supporting his perceptions is an overall history of Russia and the Soviet Union plus brief regional histories. Very valuable are Maclean's personal notes on the changes during his 50 years traveling in the country. The book's concluding chapter delves into the USSR of 1987 how people actually live, differences in society, and the economic system smoothly moving towards western capitalism. Unfortunately, many run-on and flowery sentences in the early chapters do detract from the content.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
