This book is the first English language research published on the subject of Soviet history through the perspective of Radio, as the main communication medium. Unlike previous Russian papers on the subject, the present endeavour is realized by an actual historian, in a less subjective manner. It is the result of ten years of research done in the Soviet archives. The author, Stephen Lovell, is a Professor of Modern History at St John‟s College in Oxford with a PhD from the School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) at the University of London. His research interest focuses on the Cultural and Social History of Russia in the 19th and 20th centuries.
