While there are many accounts from the bourgeois POV, and even a few from pro-Soviet friends, I've never read any 1st hand accounts of visits to the late USSR from the Maoist perspective. It is interesting. Although the extreme anti-Brezhnevism of Maoists, at times makes it little different from the western liberal POV. In her conversations with locals, she generally agrees with their criticism of the CPSU, and only brings up the Maoist alternative a couple of times. On Afghanistan she takes a very hard line for instance, comparing the honoring of Soviet war dead to Reagan's visit to the Nazi cemetery. And she believes the minorities of the USSR should not just oppose the war, but actively support the Afghans.
