"We Are Optimists" by Leonid Brezhnev, a profoundly depressing book

A profoundly depressing book

Brezhnev mania! Yee haw. Parts are good in that they describe how the Soviet Union of the late 1970s officially saw the world, other parts are painful. Nothing to inspire optimism like official Soviet doctrine in the post-Khruschev era let me tell you.
