The Soviet Union and its propaganda machine played a key role in creating the myth of “the German woman’s revolution” that led to the creation of the Berlin Wall.
That myth was so effective in creating a false sense of equality and empowerment in women that it was used for decades to discredit the “patriotic” views of the German women’s movement.
This book is the story of the propaganda that pushed the myth and is an essential resource for any student of the history of propaganda in the Soviet Union.
“It’s a wonderful book, full of fascinating and original information.
It will definitely be a good reference for students of the Cold War and in particular for the history department.
The author does a very good job of showing the different ways that propaganda was used by the USSR during the Cold Wars.
The book is packed with very interesting facts and details.
I was especially impressed with the information provided by the historian’s analysis of the Soviet propaganda.
I look forward to the next volume in the series.”
