Eastern Europe. In the Socialist World

JOHNSON, Hewlett (The Red Dean of Canterbury)
A very good copy in original dust-wrapper. A little dusty at top edge else in excellent condition. ; Illustrated by the author's wife Nowell Johnson. Hewlett Johnson was known as 'the Red Dean', for his unyielding support for the Soviet Union and its allies. "Communism, for Johnson, was not an anti-Christian force, but rather a natural result and a practical outworking of the Christian gospel...His extensive writings on Soviet Russia reflected a naive and romantic perspective on the transformation [of Russian life] after the 1917 revolution. Until the end of his life he ignored the realities of mass persecution and the extermination of political opponents, as well as the anti-religious aspects of Marxism and Stalinism" NDB, 2004
