The Cold Hard Truth: Hockey and Propaganda in the USSR
Прикладная и междисциплинарная история
The Soviet hockey program began in the 1940s, using homemade equipment and skating on makeshift outdoor rinks. By the 1970s, it had produced one of the most formidable and innovative teams of its time, challenging rivals from foreign countries with long hockey pedigrees. This was a potent narrative for contemporary Soviet propaganda, and was situated within preexisting propagandistic frameworks. By examining two key events in the history of the Soviet team – the 1972 Summit Series, and the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid – this work examines the ways in which Soviet sport was presented to the public, and the relationship between hockey and state propagandistic narratives, exploring the ways in which this propaganda existed alongside sport.
