Vitaly Ginzburg and I

Not exactly The King and I, but close enough in the Physics world. :)

This is a rather fascinating personal recollection of I.I. Mazin of the great Vitaly Ginzburg, who won the Nobel Prize a few years ago for his work in superconductivity. What is also interesting is the background information on the educational system and policy of the Soviet Union at that time.
