A Russian Journal

Description

Just

after the iron curtain fell on Eastern Europe John Steinbeck and

acclaimed war photographer, Robert Capa ventured into the Soviet Union

to report for the New York Herald Tribune. This rare opportunity took

the famous travellers not only to Moscow and Stalingrad - now

Volgograd

- but through the countryside of the Ukraine and the Caucasus. A

RUSSIAN JOURNAL is the distillation of their journey and remains a

remarkable memoir and unique historical document.

Steinbeck and Capa

recorded the grim realities of factory workers, government clerks, and

peasants, as they emerged from the rubble of World War II.

This is an

intimate glimpse of two artists at the height of their powers, answering

their need to document human struggle
