Essays from the Russian politician and writer, Roy A Medvedev
First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14cm, 151pp.
From the dustwrapper, "Roy Medvedev is a prolific writer on matters of social concern, but also a valuable guide to the literary controversies which have broken out among the Russian intelligentsia. This book is of particular interest to students of Solzhenitsyn but it takes into account a number of other important writers as well. It also enters a resonant defence of the detente and some perceptive remarks on international politics. In these pages, Roy Medvedev consolidates his reputation as an independent socialist thinker of the first rank."
The book is in very good condition, with a very slight lean to the spine. The dustwrapper has a little wear to the top edge but is otherwise good.
