The Birth of the Propaganda State: Soviet Methods of Mass Mobilization, 1917-1929

Synopsis

In this first comprehensive study of the early development of the Soviet propaganda system, Peter Kenez describes how the Bolshevik Party went about reaching the Russian people. Throughout he is more concerned with the experience of the Soviet people than with high-level politics. The book is both a major contribution to our understanding of the genius of the Soviet state, and of the nature of propaganda in the modem world.
