Parting with Illusions
Parting With Illusions: The Extraordinary Life and Controversial Views of the Soviet Union's Leading Commentator. Pozner, a Soviet TV commentator perhaps best known for cohosting (with Phil Donahue) a televised U.S./Soviet "public meeting," is what the American Right fears most--a charming, erudite member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union who speaks with a strong American accent. In this book, Pozner explains how he came to be who he is, taking the reader from his birth in German-occupied Paris to his formative years in New York City in the 1950s at the beginning of the Red Scare, to his arrival in the Soviet Union during the final years of Stalin. Interspersed throughout are remarks on the American and Soviet political systems. He has praise and criticism for each, though his heart belongs to Moscow.
