Sovyet Rusya Imparatorlugu (1967)

This book, published in 1967 contains observations of Samet Agaoglu - a right wing politician in Turkey at that time - during his visit to Soviet Union.

His observations are generally on high bureaucracy of the Soviets and the unefficiency of the system, poitical pressure on people especially the Turk and Muslim comunities, lack of necessary goods for the masses...I think most his observations were correct.It was a nice read, I must admit I was not expecting this in the beginning...the book was good
