Bitter Waters: Life and Work in Stalin's Russia

Synopsis

Bitter Waters is Gennady Andreev-Khomiakov's eyewitness account of life in the Soviet Union during the tumultuous 1930s, a time when titanic forces were shaping the course of Russian history. Forced collectivization, Five Year Plans, purges, & the phony achievements of "shock worker brigades" are only part of this story. Using this memoir of his youth to explore every aspect of Stalinist society, Andreev-Khomiakov exposes the Soviet economy to be little more than a web of corruption-a system that only functioned through bribery, barter, & brute force.
