Notes: The blurb proposes the author to be 'the only British woman to visit Russia in 1941' - whither she was sent by the Daily Sketch as a war correspondent; the undertaking led to her disillusionment with communism and she left the Party on her return to the UK - a decision which precipitated the end of her marriage to J.B.S. Haldane, who remained a member.
