  1. I wonder what the criteria was for selecting members to the agitation and propaganda department.

    “The agitation and propaganda department of the Party Central Committee found the domestic publication of The Black Book “inexpedient,” and it was banned in October 1947.”

    Interesting book review.

    • You never know with the USSR, and the Nation usually has one or two interesting reviews per month.

Please keep it civil
