      1. This book presents fascinating visual documentation of a number of exhibitions and US participation at World’s Fairs-funded by the United States Information Agency as a kind of soft propaganda to promote American values of free creative expression in contrast to Soviet dictatorship and the demands of socialist realism-that took place during the Cold War. . It considers (through a sometimes tiresome first-hand account) how the use of exhibition design, architecture, and curatorial strategies were mobilized as weapons in the Cold War, but the main information of interest are the book’s archival images.
