Propaganda: Photographs from Soviet Archives

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

From the dust jacket: "This extraordinary collection of photographs comes from a great Soviet archive, now in Sweden. The book presents a view of an almost alien culture from the last century. Now we are more knowing. We understand that every picture bears a message, that propaganda is ever present and that history is but a fiction."
There is a foreword by Hans Blix, who achieved fame as a UN inspector at the time of the Gulf War in 2003.

The co-compilers are picture editors with a particular interest in Russia.
There is a short introduction by each of the compilers and the rest of the book is a collection of black and white photographs of Soviet Union architectural and engineering achievements, landscapes and portraits ranging from cosmonauts to factory workers.

The book is in new condition, except for a little shelf ware on the dust jacket.
