Stephen Lovell

Oxford Studies in Modern European History

  • A new exploration of radio as a mouthpiece for the Soviet State across the vast territories of Russia
  • Shows that while radio offered a new communication method for Soviet politics, it also led to the State's downfall
  • Engages with social, cultural, institutional, and technological history to offer a many-sided portrait of Soviet broadcasting
  • Contains lively discussion of programme content, as well as shedding much light on the broadcasting profession and the listening public
