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

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

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this 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 this book, Kenez 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 modern world.

Synopsis:

Peter Kenez's comprehensive study on the Soviet propaganda system describes how the Bolshevik Party reached the Russian people.
