  1. Bundle: Why Study the Russian Revolution, Unfinished Twentieth Century

    Bundle: Why Study the Russian Revolution, Unfinished Twentieth Century

    Between February and October 1917, Russia was shaken by two monumental revolutions. The first overthrew the Romanov aristocracy that had ruled for more than 300 years. The second overthrew the bourgeois Provisional Government and established the first socialist workers state in history.
    Written from a Marxist perspective, the essays in Why Study the Russian Revolution put the events of 1917 in a contemporary perspective, under conditions of a world wracked by immense social and political contradictions.

    In The Russian Revolution and the Unfinished Twentieth Century, David North examines the geopolitical, social and theoretical problems of our time, and the implications of the dissolution of the USSR in 1991.

  2. John Heartfield - Laughter is a Devastating Weapon

    John Heartfield - Laughter is a Devastating Weapon

    Laughter is a Devastating Weapon (Tate Publishing, October 2015) is an exciting publication devoted to the work of German artist John Heartfield (1891-1968), known for his incomparably dark, mocking, politically pointed photocollages. The title aptly refers to the satirical power of Heartfield’s artistic efforts, which earned him one of the top positions on the Nazis’ “most wanted list” when they came to power in 1933 and nearly cost him his life. Authors David King and Ernst Volland present a fascinating group of Heartfield images from King’s own collection. Volland is a German artist, whose work includes photomontages, as well as efforts in other media. Also an author and curator, Volland has brought to light overlooked figures such as Yevgeni Khaldei, the Soviet photographer best known for the iconic image of a Soviet soldier raising a flag over the Reichstag in Berlin in May 1945.

  3. The Commissar Vanishes (new edition)

    The Commissar Vanishes (new edition)

    "In The Commissar Vanishes (1997), King investigated and exposed the falsification of Soviet history practiced by the Stalinist regime, as inconvenient figures were excised from photographs and art works. King commented: 'The physical eradication of Stalin's political opponents at the hands of the secret police was swiftly followed by their obliteration from all forms of pictorial existence.' "'In one notorious example (which appears on the cover of the book), a photograph of Stalin with three other Communist Party leaders (including Sergey Kirov) taken in the mid-1920s is worked over through the years, with all of the other figures eventually disappearing, finally leaving by 1940, in a painting based on the photo, only the gravedigger of the revolution.'"
