The Soviet Power, Johnson, Hewlett - Dean Of Canterbury
1 Johnson, Hewlett - Dean Of Canterbury The Soviet Power
Hewlett Johnson wrote this book is a very interesting style. What could be dry material is brought to life by his words. This volume is a special edition for Soviet Russia Today. It is separated into six books, being: Apology and Excuse, The Soviet Blue-Prints The New Society, The Socialist Sixth of the World, The Greatest Good of the Greatest Number, The Plan and the Peoples, and Mental and Spiritual Horizons. Each book opens ones eyes, even one well-read in Soviet laws and practices, to some amazing truths. For instance, there was a law that a female had to be 12 years old before she could marry. This caused children to be enslaved. It took until 1940 for the age to be raised to 18. All kinds of interesting ideas and thoughts may be gleaned from this book - not that one would want to employ them, but it is interesting. The spine is worn and tanned, and has a missing bit at the top and bottom. There is a damp stain on the bottom that goes through to 3-4 pages, but does not hamper reading. The front cover has wear at both corners, and the back has a few darkened spots. It is also darkened near the spine. ; Drawings; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 352 pages
