520    "'We've finished the earthly tsars and we're coming for 
       the heavenly ones!' Thus spoke the Soviet Union's first 
       atheist propagandists as they declared war on "the opium 
       of the people" across the USSR. Soviet atheism is the 
       great lost subject of the 20th century. Pope Pius XI led a
       "crusade of prayer" against it; George Orwell satirized it
       in Animal Farm; the Nazis called it a Jewish plot; 
       Franklin D. Roosevelt pressured Stalin to abandon it: 
       Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn blamed it for Russia's 
       catastrophes; and Ronald Reagan put it at the core of his 
       "Evil Empire" speech. And yet, because the Soviet Union 
       promoted atheism almost entirely for domestic consumption,
       decades' worth of arcane and astonishing anti-religious 
       imagery remains unknown in the West. Drawing on the early 
       Soviet atheist magazines Godless and Godless at the 
       Machine, and postwar posters by Communist Party publishers,
       author Roland Elliott Brown presents an unsettling tour of
       atheist ideology in the USSR. Here are uncanny, 
       imaginative and downright blasphemous visions from the 
       very guts of the Soviet atheist apparatus: sinister 
       priests rub shoulders with cross-bearing colonial 
       torturers, greedy mullahs, a cyclopean Jehovah and a 
       crypto-fascist Jesus; Russian cosmonauts mock God from 
       space while vigilant border guards nab American Bible 
       smugglers. Godless Utopia is the occult grimoire of a lost
       socialist anti-theology."--Provided by publisher.
