Pagination or Media Count:
Some of the distinguishing features of Soviet political communications are discussed. Certain characteristics of this body of international communications that have remained relatively constant at least since the consolidation of Stalins dictatorship, in spite of changes in the propaganda line, are described. Some of these relatively constant characteristics have to do with formal properties of the channels through which the communications pass others, with the role assumed by the communicator toward his audience and the objectives that he seeks to attain. In both these respects, Soviet communications differ considerably from political communications of non-Soviet origin.
