Changing Images of the U.S. in "Pravda</I> Political Cartoons, 1917-1991

Kevin J. McKenna

All the Views Fit to Print is a comprehensive, century-long study of the changing images of the United States in Pravda political cartoons, appearing from the newspaper’s founding (1912) through its final days as the official news organ of the Community Party of the Soviet Union (1991). Based on quantitative as well as qualitative content analysis of Pravda’s editorial caricatures, the book provides a lively study of the newspaper’s agitational and propaganda mission to define and reflect the «American way of life» for its Soviet readers. This book is illustrated with nearly one hundred political caricatures, as well as eleven tables depicting cartoon themes and trends over nearly a century of anti-American agitational-propaganda.
