Title: Inside Russia: The Life and Times of Zoya Zarubina : For the First Time a Female Soviet Intelligence Officer Tells Her Story of Life, Love, and Triumph over personal(Signed)
Description: Fine condition. Eakin Press, 1999. First US edition-first printing. The book is Signed on the title page by the Author and Zoya Zarubina with an inscription We wish you informative and enjoyable reading. Dark blue hardback(gilt lettering to the spine, small nick on the edge of the spine) with Dj(a couple of small nicks and crease on the edges of the Dj cover), both in fine condition. Illustrated with b/w photos, map. The book is new with light shelf wear inside the edge of the Dj cover. 187pp including Foreword, index. A collectable signed first edition. From Library Journal: Jeffery, editor of Society (1975-82), wrote this book for middle America in hopes that personal and professional sharing will strike a note of accord, thereby helping more of us to understand how alike we are. The writing is cumbersome and seems to change from autobiography to biography at the whim of the author, even within chapters. While Zarubina, a former Soviet Intelligence Officer and interpreter, claims to have harbored secret peace and coexistence leanings, it stretches credulity to believe that a functionary of the Soviet government with close ties to Stalin would voluntarily admit to such beliefs or even have them until safer times. The story, following her career from the War to December 1998, adds to the overall knowledge of Soviet diplomacy and serves to elevate the status of women in present-day Russia; some peripheral information is given about how plans for the atomic bomb ended up in the USSR in 1948. Interesting but not compelling; an optional purchase for academic and public libraries. Signed by the Author. Fine/Fine. ISBN: 9781571683090
