Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Being busy living in the times analyzed in this book, I had little time to reflect on the historical context. I really enjoyed reading of the economical, social, and political times of both the Soviet Union and the United States, stressing the roles and lives of women and how they were viewed in both countries. I laughed when cook books that I had and used were quoted.
I had always been under the impression that the USA and the Soviet Union were in an arms race, when in fact The Soviet Union was also trying to match and "bury" us in agricultural production.
This book was very easy to read with very interesting original documents to prove the authors points.
