"An invaluable book that makes available a huge fund of visual material from Soviet Russia and provides a rich contextualization of these images.

Between the Russian Revolution and the Cold War, Soviet public culture was so dominated by the power of the state that slogans like these appeared routinely in newspapers, on posters, and in government proclamations.   The “culture of secrecy” provided advantages not only for Stalin personally but also for the Soviet regime as a whole.
