Notes:
Moscow in the 1960s was the other side of the Iron Curtain: mysterious, exotic, even dangerous. In 1966 the historian Sheila Fitzpatrick travelled to Moscow to research the Soviet archives. This was the era of Brezhnev, of a possible 'thaw' in the Cold War, when the Soviets couldn't decide either to thaw out properly or re-freeze. In this book, Sheila Fitzpatrick provides an insight into everyday life in Soviet Moscow. Full of drama and colourful characters, her memoir highlights the dangers and drudgery faced by Westerners living under communism.
