SOVIET CRITICS OF USA IN 1930] Sovremennaya Amerika [i.e. Modern America]
Krasnaya gazeta, Leningrad 1929 - 100 pp.: ill. 17?13 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Restoration of the spine, previous owner's ink stamp on the title page, margin of p.65 is cut off (the text is not affected). Cover design by Georgy Fitingof (1905-1975), Soviet artist and illustrator well known for his work in children's and adventure literature. He worked many times with famous Russian magazine Vokrug sveta [i.e. Around the World]. This edition brings together some of the facts about contemporary United States of America. USA is often referred as the Empire of the Dollar in the book. The general tone of the book is unapproving, especially concerning worker's class and USA-USSR relationship. In 1920s the images of the United States produced in the Soviet Union often strongly criticized the American social and economic system, yet underlying these hostilities was an admiration for American industrial achievement and an aspiration to model Soviet advancements on, and then surpass, those of the West. The book is supplied with the illustrations of union rallies, unemployment and workers queuing for the food. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
