In response to:

Witnesses to Calamity from the July 20, 1978 issue

To the Editors:

I was perturbed to discover that in your July 20 issue you carried a review of Boris Shragin’s book Challenge of the Spirit in which reference to a book that I published in the summer of 1977 was made four times without mention of the US publisher. The book is Landmarks: A Collection of Essays on the Russian Intelligentsia, and was in fact edited by Boris Shragin. Being a small press, I must rely heavily on citations in book reviews such as your own for my publicity.
