We recieved a letter from the publisher about this title.  It was published in two editions, an English one with the title New Times (OCLC#31386532)  and a Russian one with the title "Novoe vremia"  (OCLC#8118914).  These two editions were combined into a new publication.  The new publication has an OCLC record #8118914 and the two records for the older titles are closed.
