Report on Service with the America Exhibition in Moscow
An account of the visit of one of the 75 Russian-speaking guides at the American Exhibition in Moscow during the summer of 1959. The author's observations and the many comments and opinions expressed to him during this time are presented. The background of the political climate in the Soviet Union is indicated by a description of the Exhibition as a major landmark in the U.S.-Soviet cultural exchange program and by a discussion of the environment in which the author's private meetings with Soviet citizens were held. While he met most people in Moscow, he also talked to others in Kiev, Leningrad, and Riga.
