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.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation Paper series. The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
