Issued by the Italian Communist Party, this pamphlet’s nine chapters each seek to demystify and de-villainize a separate facet of life in Soviet Russia: property, family, liberty, daily life; some of these are in response to criticism by specific people or organizations. A striking cover illustration “unmasks” a smiling person at work harvesting wheat. Date of publication based on internal evidence.
