Stanislav Menshikov is an outstanding scientist and economist who has received international recognition. He introduces the reader to the fascinating interesting laboratory productive research work that he happened to lead, including coryphaeuses of modern economics Nobel laureates. And at the same time, the memoir unfolds a picture of tense and turbulent life of a professional international journalist and diplomat. On these roads, stretching almost across the whole of Europe to the United States, from India and Japan to Australia and Africa, fate brings him to the most famous and prominent figures of the past half-century: Khrushchev and Gorbachev, Nehru and the Dalai Lama, Nixon and Kissinger, U.S. billionaires and politicians - Rockefeller, Ford, Morgan, Harriman.


Due to the language and bright manner of presentation the book is read as a fiction story. The older generation will be particularly close to those of its pages, where the author experienced the atmosphere of years - a difficult and happy, of which the author writes with surprising optimism and faith in justice.
