KIRKUS REVIEW

Describing the attack on religion in Russia during the past 25 years, the author illustrates his book with many specific and particularized instances both of the propaganda and cruelties of the atheists, and of the resistance of the people who refused to forsake religion. The author was teaching in Petrograd at the time of the Revolution and has collected much documentary evidence to support all statements made in the book. He reports a change in attitude in recent years, however, his contention being that the Communist State has had to yield not only to the Russian people, but to her allies in war that Stalin is now giving God lip-service in order to impress Americans and the con peoples of Europe.
