Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was looking for some literature on the construction of Avtozavod, the car plant in Nizhnii-Novgorod (later Gorkii), and found this book almost by chance. I'm very glad I did. The writer's father was on the spot, in a management position, and wrote home frequently and insightfully about this mad project: Soviet builders and US managers & engineers constructing a city of 60,000 people and a car assembly plant out of nothing. Lavishly illustrated as well, it's an excellently written book that really gives you some idea of what it must have been like to be there, when communism was still a hopeful ideology for millions. Highly recommended.
