For Sergey Plekhanov, 1969 was his introduction to a freer form of enterprise on the dingier side of capitalism. Five Brooklyn teen-agers tried to mug him for his watch. Functioning more on naivete than nerve, Plekhanov told them it was a Russian watch. It was the only one of its kind in New York, he added, and therefore of little value to any fence. Impressed by his grasp of the economics of their trade, the Prospect Park roughs tossed a few rocks at Plekhanov and left man and watch intact.

How can you dislike Sergey Plekhanov? He knows the lyrics of Phil Ochs' "Talking Birmingham Jam" by heart and brought his guitar all the way from Moscow. He tells funny jokes. He never says Vietnam when he means Afghanistan. Communist, atheist Plekhanov, deputy director of the Soviet Union's major think tank on the United States, charmed most of the ordinary citizens he met--even some hard-shell anti-Communists--during a Soviet delegation's four-day visit here last week.

What if they ended a war and nobody noticed? Herein lies the premise of political analyst Sidney Blumenthal's chronicle of the 1988 presidential campaign, which he says was lived "as if the Cold War were raging and Stalin alive." Yet, despite the war being declared over--by "Cold Warrior" Ronald Reagan five months before the election--George Bush and Michael Dukakis waged campaigns that focused on national security. To Blumenthal, that was a huge mistake.
