Jefimova, Boris [Efimov, Boris]
Za Trvalý Mír, Proti Podn covatel m Války [For Lasting Peace Against Warmongers]
Praha [Prague]: Nakladatelstvi Mir – Družstevní Práce, 1951. First Edition. Jefimova, Boris [Efimov, Boris]. Small 4to (10 7/8 x 9 1/4 inches), 275 x 235 mm), [124] pages, in illustrated boards.

Given the preponderance of Wall Street financiers in the cartoons, Wall Street appears to be behind Western imperialism and belligerence and even abetted the rise of Hitler. The book opens with a quote from "J. Stalin" and contains 60 cartoons, mostly in black-and-white but some containing deep red, representing, of course, the supposed nobility of the Soviet Union and its allies.
