Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston - ISBN:0395426707, 1996. Hardcover, 6½" x 9½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Mark Kramer's story begins in the waning days of Communism, as Gorbachev shines the spotlight of 'perestroika' on the failing empire's moribund collective-farming system. Kramer sets out to discover why a nation blessed with an eleven-time-zone stretch of fertile land still suffers from shortages and rationing. From 1987 to 1993, in successive journeys, Kramer revisits many of the same places and characters. Through them we come to understand the flawed system poignantly playing it selfout. This is a unique account of a nation self-destructing, then facing the grim task of remaking itself.
