Summary
"This book is a collection of articles--organized by topic on various aspects of American society, politics, economy, and foreign policy--typical of the commentary on the United States that paraded before the Soviet population with great frequency in all Soviet media for decades after World War II. The articles have been selected from Soviet periodicals intended for a mass audience of ordinary citizens. Unlike the interminable speeches of party leaders presented in full pages of tiny print in Pravda and Izvestiia, these items were meant to be engaging and even entertaining for millions of casual Soviet readers"--Provided by publisher
