ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the book "The Red Carpet," by Marshall MacDuffie. The Red Carpet is the product of this mountain of notes and of the digestive process, which followed MacDuffie's return. It is the straightforward story of what he saw and heard on his trip through the Ukraine, Central Asia, the Caucasus and other key areas of Russia, a trip in which he talked to Soviet citizens of high and low degree, visited in their homes, factories, and farms, and obtained a personal picture of Russia whose comprehensiveness few Americans have ever been able to equal.
