Through Russian Eyes

West Haven, Connecticut: Foundation for Promoting Enduring Peace, [1952?]. No Edition Stated.

Single sheet folded to create [4] pages, each measuring 11 x 8 1/2 inches (279 x 216 mm).

Rare leaflet on U.S.-Soviet relations, from a Christian Left perspective. The author pleads for better understanding of Russian history, arguing that the country has made great strides since the October Revolution. He also says the Soviets feel encircled by hostile forces, pointing to Western military bases along the country's perimeters.

The format of this leaflet is a bit odd: the first three pages are professionally printed, while the last page appears to be mimeographed. The publisher, the Foundation for Promoting Enduring Peace, was established in 1952 to promote world peace and oppose military conflict.
