Stalin ordered his execution, but here Palchinksy's ghost leads us through the miasma of Soviet technology and industry, pointing out the mistakes he condemned in his lifetime, the corruption and collapse he predicted, and the ultimate price paid for silencing those who were not afraid to speak out. The story of this engineer's life and work, as Graham tells it, is also the story of the Soviet Union's industrial promise and failure.
