DISCOVERED IN THE OLD SOVIET UNION: Walter Block's 'Defending the Undefendable'

Walter Block shares the following email with me:
Dear Walter!
This book from Russian National Library in Saint-Petersburg. Book was delivered to Leningrad in 1978.
I don’t know how many people read your book in Soviet Period. For him or her it was absolutely shocked. I hope he or she survived)
Sincerely yours,

RW note:

This does not come to me as that much of a shock. I had been told years ago by a Russian economist who was educated during the Soviet era that the Soviet Union had all the Western free market economics books but only the Soviet elite scholars had access to them. Why wouldn't they have the most superb and radical?
