I gave the book 2 stars mainly because there is a lack of proper engagement with the information and most of it is just uttering soviet propaganda as facts. The book does have some interesting pictures in it, so it would be worth flipping through it given the chance.

    • It’s not badly written, just the topic is not relevant today for anyone but researchers. I don’t imagine someone would want to read about the first 5-year plan without having to do so. ๐Ÿ˜€ The photos though, those are really interesting.
      The more I read about Pulitzer the more I dislike the prizes and their stance.
