Pravda: Inside the Soviet News Machine
By Angus Roxburgh
Braziller, 1987, 280 pp

A brief history of the official Communist Party newspaper and description of its role in the governmental system, followed by selections from recent issues as examples of purpose, style and format. There is little new here for those cognizant of the function of the Soviet press, but the general reader will find it interesting.
