Selected by Indie Booksellers for the July 2009 Indie Notables
“Who knew a history book could be so funny? Romp along with the blustery premier of the USSR in 1959, with all his wacky pronouncements, and learn (or remember) a little something about the coldest days of the cold war. This is a fun book for everyone.”
-- Pete Mulvihill, Green Apple Books, San Francisco, CA


Description

This hilarious account of Khrushchev’s 1959 U.S. tour is also a supremely entertaining evocation of the history and atmosphere of Cold War America
