Reuter Reporter Among
the Communists 1958-1959
By Peter Johnson
250 pages, illustrated
$26.50 paper original
Peter Johnson, the author, was a foreign correspondent behind Communist lines in Germany during the Cold War. He kept daily diaries of his impressions, which now throw new light on those dark and dangerous days.
This autobiographical book provides portraits of Nikita Krushchev, and the amiable spy Klaus Fuchs who granted Johnson an exclusive interview.
Johnson interviews former Nazi SS men and their victims, describes the suffering of the masses under Communist rule, and generally provides an excellent perspective on the Cold War. Includes 22 black & white photographs.
