"By Rocking Chair Across Russia is a no hold barred report by a team of intrepid pen and ink satirists who have nothing whatever to hide. Never having been to Russia in their lives, Alex Atkinson and Ronald Searle are free to show us the real Russia, the Russia few tourists are ever priviledged to see. A heart to heart chat with Khrushchev? A trip to the forbidden Virgin Lands? An evening of poker at the Laughing Cossack Saloon? The authors have spared themselves no pains in attempting to further East West understanding."
