"Religion," a Soviet Minister of Education once remarked, "is like a nail; the harder you hit it, the deeper it goes into the wood"In this book, Powell suggests that the drive to rid the Soviet people of their religious beliefs has in some cases antagonized them because it has been poorly handled; in other cases, it has even led to the organization of political dissent. This is a good book for anyone who is interested in the Soviet Union, propaganda techniques, and the struggle to maintain one's deeply-rooted convictions in the face of government pressure to do otherwise.
