From Library Journal:

Robinson, a Jamaican-born Ford Motor toolmaker who sought economic security, engineering training, and an escape from racism, was recruited to work in the Soviet Union in the mid-1930s. Never a Communist, Robinson walked a tightrope while living in the Soviet system, not completely accepting or being accepted by it and recognizing that there was racism, repression, and regimentation around him. Finally, after 24 years of unsuccessful effort, Robinson "escaped" to the United States via Uganda. He provides firsthand accounts of the Stalinist purges, sacrifices of World War II, and economic and political tensions of the Cold War. A rare look at Soviet life. John R. Sillito, Weber State Coll. Lib., Ogden, Ut.
Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc.
