Six weeks in Russia, 1919. I am well aware that there is material in this book which will be misused by fools both white and red. That is not my fault. My object has been narrowly limited. I have tried by means of a bald record of conversations and things seen, to provide material for those who wish to know what is being done and thought in Moscow at the present time, and demand something more to go upon than secondhand reports of wholly irrelevant atrocities committed by either one side or the other, and often by neither one side.
The book is about Eastern European countries, their history, traditions and culture. First, the book is, truly, a great achievement, being a vast volume comprised mostly of firsthand experiences in Eastern Europe. Unlike many other travel books, this one goes into ethnography in a superior way. Francis Tapon dedicated a part of his life to travel and describe the world. There was much valuable information in this sense alone, in a purely travelogue-type way. Also, there were many informative historical briefs for each country and its people, which I also found valuable (insofar as brief historical treatments can be valued, anyway).
