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.
