KIRKUS REVIEW

An extensive, documented study of Soviet suppression as evidenced through the controls laid on literature, drama, music, science, education, through the indoctrination of the intellectual class for propaganda at home and abroad. This quotes copiously from recent resolutions and newspapers, checks Soviet statements against the actual articles interpreted and shows the perversion of truth that is used to erase any favorable attitude toward the West; it uses documents to show how any violations of the Party line are castigated and how those attacked have publicly crawled back into favor, in speech and in actions; it calls for an all-out offensive drive against this attempt at world domination. The factual material is preceded by a history of the formulation of the doctrines of revolt and power politics which gives the background of this mobilization for the achievement of its aims. A book for the students of power, for the aware citizen today, for the unbeliever, this will have a wide hearing.
