THE IRON CURTAIN: Where Freedom's Offensive Begins by Harry & Bonaro Overstreet

THE IRON CURTAIN: Where Freedom's Offensive Begins

Email this review


The highest conceivable degree of lucidity has been achieved by this, the Overstreet's third book about Communism and the cold war. In late summer of 1959, they paid a visit to the Berlin Wall; the experience stimulated them to try to analyze why the Communists need an Iron Curtain and what the fortified perimeter discloses about the nature of the Communist system. Not only have they answered these questions but in doing so have traced the parallel course of Soviet history and the development of Communist ideology. Its scope is just broad enough to classify it as a text from which the fundamentals of Communism might be carefully gleaned.
