This is a poster against Soviet revisionism. China preparing for war during the Sino-Soviet split in 1970's. The poster depicts the Sino-Soviet border conflict. The graphic: Leonid Brezhnev, Alexei Kosygin, (Chinese characters) New Tsars of Soviet revisionisim. The Cultural Revolution which took place between circa 1966 and 1976 was a social/ political movement. Mao Tse Tung, then Chairman of the ruling Communist Party started this movement to reinforce strict communist dogma. Capitalism and traditional Chinese culture were to be obliterated. Big-character posters were used to denounce people as opponents of the Revolution. Red Guards (pupils and students who swear loyalty to Mao and his Little Red Book) destroy anything that is branded 'old' and eliminate people considered 'rightists'. The posters also were part of the campaign to respond to particular issues as they arose locally or nationally. The Cultural Revolution plunges China into turmoil and internal strife; the country is in chaos, but the posters only show enthusiasm. Approx. 20x30 inches. Minor wrinkling top right corner. Good collectible shape.
