MODERN PSYCHIATRY, by Francis Bracelant' and Michael Experts Spoo^ /£e uSAian Mid,, 9 Russia Anyone* By Erie Nicol and Peter Whalley. Harper and Row, publishers Inc., 49 East 33rd St., New York 16, N. Y. pp S3. What a spoof! The history of mother Russia is full of drama, sometimes bloody and sometimes grim, but never funny. Now, two Canadian authors have turned this history into a comedy of errors and the Russian hierarchy cannot do anything about it but maybe read the 93 humorously illustrated pages and smile subtly. Authors Eric Nicol and Peter Whalley give an unsystematic account of Russian history hop- scotching from Cathy the Great, to Ivy the Terrible, Alexander the Not So Great, Peter the Nearly Great at Everything, Nicholas I, Definitely the Un-Great and Joe the Glorious. The end result of the authors' research work is several loosely knit essays which are anything hut literary and could be read in an hour. The book shouldn't really be touched by persons untutored in legitimate Russian history lest it leave an everlasting erroneous imprint. Make Rassians Fat At times it picks up a moral theme advocating that the only way to defeat communism is to make Russians fat and affluent. Let them worry about faulty TV nets, bad washers and electric can openers. This will immerse Russians in a bath of luxuries and .•should make them forget about decolorising the world, leaving it with one color-dull red. But more frequently the authors devote their pages to nonsensical absurdities which are at times mirth provoking. Russian art, for example, has never really got off the ground, according to Messrs. Nicol and Whalley. R's because the country is too cold to paint nudes. "Even after the revolution nobody got any closer to that kind of painting because nobody was urging workers to get on with central heating," they write. Ever Heard Shy-Kowskl? The authors approve Russian music especially the composer who wrote symphonies for a lady he loved but was too bashful to speak to-Shy-KowsW. The authors claim that Russia's Czar Alexander gained several territories in the Caucasus that entitled the Russians to call themselves Caucasians and eat in any southern restaurant. But people were not pleased with the czars and early in the 20th Century the royal family was taken into a cellar from which only about 20 emerged alive, later moving to Paris, London and Hollywood with the title of "Grand Duchess Anesthesia." Before the czars, Russia was ruled by the House of Rurik Vladimir the Great, one of the rulers, got rid of his 800 wives by embracing the church, the authors relate. "This left him with one wife and made him a saint. To celebrate his death his sons murdered one another."

The winds of change blew over Russia, however, and a man named Karl Marx transformed it into a storm. According to the satiric commentators, Marx finally wrote "Das Kaput" in which he described his theory of dieteti- cal materialism, a fat-free philosophy for people who were not eating much anyhow. World War I helped Marx expound his theory with the aid of Lenin who "sneaked back to Russia in a sealed railway car, the introduction of a European package tourist plan." The revolution was on and the peasants were organized into huge farms called collectives because whatever the farmers grew the state collected it. Joseph Stahr came on the scene and was called the man of steel because he invented the Iron Curtain. And so the authors go on, slaughtering history just as Jerry Lewis butchered the Cinderella fairy tale on the screen. —J.J.Z.

Dr. Scores Again of Random House, Ine. under eo cans. A child's learning to read can turn from pain to pleas* ure with a prescription for Dr. Seuss's ABC. The letters' association with delightfully humorous context Is the sugar coating on the fdL This Beginner Book makes the child's introduction to the ABCs a happy experience and sets a fun pattern for his approach to the excitement of the sound of letters and learning how those sound- grow into words. With repitition and alliteration the letters and their sounds seep into the child's consciousness as drops of, water wearing away stone, but faster! The youngster may grow up with colorful characters in his extensive vocabulary but then literature is steeped in Winnie the Poo, Archy and MehRabels, mugwumps, Dumbos and a Jab- berwock here and there. In 25 years of writing in the field of child literature, Dr. Seuss, or Theodor Seuss Gelsel, has authored 21 books "with qualities a child especially needs, a genuine comic spirit and a sense of the power and joy of language" as one reviewer phrased it. -M.L.M.
