From images of Vladimir Lenin promising "Land to the peasants!" to those of Mao Zedong declaring the Cultural Revolution, communist regimes have relied on powerful--and often beautifully wrought--artwork to ensure the successes of their revolutions. Because of their ease of distribution, posters in particular have figured as central vehicles of propaganda in nearly every communist nation. In this book, Mary Ginsberg offers the first truly global survey of the history and variety of communist poster art.
