"Whereas the propaganda book of the 1930s and 1940s loudly proclaimed itself as such, postwar books sought to distance themselves from the rhetoric of overt propaganda and to masquerade as the purely documentary..."--Parr & Badger
A haunting look inside one of the most closed societies of the postwar period!!
