Summary
'Curtain of Lies' examines the role of truth in the political culture of the Cold War by looking at Eastern Europe during the period from 1948-1956. It examines how actors on both sides of the Iron Curtain tried to delineate the 'truth' of Eastern Europe and how this worked to set the parameters of knowledge about the region.
