Description - Magnetic Mountain by Stephen Kotkin
Stephen Kotkin was the first American in 45 years to be allowed into Magnitogorsk, a city built in response to Stalin's decision to transform the predominately agricultural nation into a "country of metal". With access to previously untapped archives and interviews, Kotkin presents an account of the impact of industrialization on a single urban community.
