Description:

New York. 1958. McGraw Hill. 1st Printing. Very Good In Chipped Dustjacket. 21. 107 pages. hardcover. keywords:. inventory # 8774. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Richard Armour — America’s top secret weapon — aims again and hits the Marx in a shrewd spoof of Russian history and Communism. Drawing on an Armoury stocked with exaggeration, understatement, wordplay, and wit, as well as uncensored fact. Armour tosses a humor bomb that will rock the Politburo to its foundations. In this, his latest safari into satire and the wilds of the half truth and the truth and a half, Armour romps through Communism from beginning to end, or as near the end as it now is. With prize specimens like Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, and Khrushchev to operate on, Doctor Armour dissects the Comrades with glee and a sharp pen. There are laughs aplenty as Armour, proving that the pun is mightier than the sword, makes capital of DAS KAPITAL, describes the orgies of the Orgburo, and leads his happy fans through revolutions, counterrevolutions, and counter counterrevolutions. For extra fun, he makes a few uninhibited explorations into the Communist world of atheism and free love. IT ALL STARTED WITH MARX may never reach the walls of the Kremlin. In fact it is the book least likely to succeed in the Soviet Union. But everywhere else it will delight the devotees of such Armour classics as IT ALL STARTED WITH COLUMBUS, IT ALL STARTED WITH EUROPA, IT ALL STARTED WITH EVE, and TWISTED TALES FROM SHAKESPEARE. Very Good In Chipped Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory #
