RED STAR OVER RUSSIA

RED STAR OVER RUSSIA

A Visual History of the Soviet Union From 1917 to the Death of Stalin

By David King. This stunning collection of more than 550 photos, posters, illustrations, and artifacts from the Soviet regime transports readers into life in communist Russia in a way that traditional histories can't. Witness a painting of the storming of the Winter Palace, a photo of soldiers dismantling a monastery in Moscow, images from the pro-Stalinist magazine USSR in Construction, World War II propaganda posters, an anti-America cartoon from the early years of the Cold War, and much more. Brief, lively text explains each image and sets it in historical context. "This book should be in every public library, in every secondary school, and in the hands of anyone who aspires to understand what has made Russia the state it is today," says The Literary Review. Grades 9 and up. 9½" x 11½". Tate. 352 pages. 2016 edition.primarysources
