Medals of Dishonour

Medals of Dishonour

A new perspective on how the Cold War was fought through Soviet
propaganda cartoons. 75 Soviet cartoons from a largely
unpublished private collection are juxtaposed with western
examples (innovatively designed on interleaving inset pages) to
show how each side responded to key events of the period. They
reveal not just the obsessions and ferocious propaganda
campaigns of the Cold War, but also some startling similarities in the way each side portrayed the other. The introduction is by Sergei
Khrushchev, son of the former Soviet leader.
