From the cover: “Ustinov In Russia is a very personal guided tour of the world’s largest country by its most famous ‘grandson’. While making his unique television series, Peter Ustinov’s Russia, the great story-teller was allowed carte blanche to travel and record freely throughout the Soviet Union. His travels took him more than 100,000 miles around the vast and varied landscape of the Soviet Union -from Moscow to Siberia, from Georgia to Lithuania-meeting people, experiencing their lives and recording his visit in words and colour photographs. Ustinov’s text is a marvellous collection of anecdotes about the Russian people and their country. It ranges from amusing warnings about Russian hotels and taxi drivers to ‘interviews’ with the likes of Ivan the Terrible, Peter the Great and Tolstoy. The book also contains more than 100 original photographs, most of which were taken by the author himself during his travels. Ustinov In Russia is not only an amusing and attractive book, it also opens the door to a Russia only a few have been able to see and appreciate.”
