Jim Brown is a Sotonian and former Southampton Police Sergeant and Chief Security & Safety Officer at the Southampton Container Terminal. Since his retirement in 1990 he has enthusiastically researched the towns history and is the author of many books on its past. He is Vice-President of Bitterne Local History Society, a member of The Friends of Southampton Old Cemetery and the Hampshire Genealogical Society.

This account of a visit to the USSR in September 1986 was written as a result of the vastly different experiences the author encountered in what turned out to be an eventful family holiday. It details the great differences between life under communist rule and western democracy and is a reminder of what life was like in the Soviet Union prior to the later glasnost revolution. Beautifully illustrated, in colour, it also shows the splendour of the buildings created in the imperial days of the Czar.
