요약:
K Blows Top is the hilarious true story of a stranger in a strange land. The stranger was Nikita Khrushchev, the fat-bellied, thin-skinned, funny, cranky premier of the Soviet Union. The strange land was America in the 50s, a world of tail fins, movie stars, missile silos, and duck-and-cover drills. Khrushchev's bizarre 1959 trip across America was, as historian John Lewis Gaddis called it, "a surreal extravaganza."

K blows top : missed chance for early end to the Cold War?

by jceggles (WorldCat 사용자가 게시함 2011-10-22) 아주 좋음 퍼머링크

Entertaining it is, this account of the Russian Bear's trips into the heart of capitalism, and, briefly at least, into the hearts of many Americans. One sober thought which the reader may take away from this book is not so hilarious. If Dulles had not persuaded Eisenhower to send Francis Gary Powers...

Fun, Breezy History

by gershbec (WorldCat 사용자가 게시함 2009-08-04) 매우만족 퍼머링크

This was a great read about a trip by Khrushchev to the United States in the fifties.  I was born well after Khrushchev was gone so my knowledge of him was pretty much limited to the shoe banging on the table, so it was particularly interesting to hear about his trip in the context of the...

schema:description"K Blows Top is the hilarious true story of a stranger in a strange land. The stranger was Nikita Khrushchev, the fat-bellied, thin-skinned, funny, cranky premier of the Soviet Union. The strange land was America in the 50s, a world of tail fins, movie stars, missile silos, and duck-and-cover drills. Khrushchev's bizarre 1959 trip across America was, as historian John Lewis Gaddis called it, "a surreal extravaganza." For two weeks at the height of the Cold War, Khrushchev traveled from coast to coast, scaring some Americans and amusing others. "K" -- as the headline writers called him -- shadowboxed with Nelson Rockefeller, insulted Richard Nixon, irked Ike, impressed Elizabeth Taylor, grossed out Marilyn Monroe, and ogled Shirley MacLaine as she filmed a dance scene in Can-Can. He also told jokes, threatened atomic war, shocked the United Nations, sparked a riot in a San Francisco supermarket, wowed the coeds in an Iowa home economics class, and blew the minds of the reporters who chronicled his every move. Khrushchev's journey was a glorious farce but the humor was darkened by the shadow of the atomic bomb. As he kept reminding people with his comic tantrums and grisly jokes, he was a hot-tempered man who possessed the power to incinerate America. In this delightful romp through Cold War America, Peter Carlson re-creates a darkly comic history that reads like of Vonnegut novel. - Jacket flap."@en
