Summary

An epic story of courage, genius and terrible folly, this is the first history of how the Soviet Union's scientists became both the glory and the laughingstock of the intellectual world.
Simon Ings weaves together what happened when a handful of impoverished and underemployed graduates, professors and entrepreneurs, as well as collectors and charlatans, bound themselves to a failing government to create a world superpower. And he shows how Stalin's obsessions derailed a great experiment in 'rational government'.
