Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: London Faber and Faber 2010Description: xiii, 434 p.ISBN: 9780571225231.Subject(s): Soviet Union - History - 1953-1985 | Soviet Union - Politics and government - 1953-1985DDC classification: 947.085 Summary: Red Plenty is about that moment in history, and how it came, and how it went away; about the brief era when, under the rash leadership of Nikita Khrushchev, the Soviet Union looked forward to a future of rich communists and envious capitalists, when Moscow would out-glitter Manhattan, and every Lada would be better engineered than a Porsche. It�s about the scientists who did their genuinely brilliant best to make the dream come true, to give the tyranny its happy ending. It�s history, it�s fiction. It�s a comedy of ideas, and a novel about the cost of ideas. (http://faber.co.uk/work/red-plenty/9780571225231/)
