Books in Chinese Propaganda Posters

"Books in Chinese Propaganda Posters: Objects of Veneration, Subjects of Destruction" is an exhibition of old posters from China that portray the changing attitudes of the Chinese towards books, book knowledge and learning in general. View all the posters here. This 1969 poster on the left says that educated youths must go to the countryside to receive re-education from the Poor and Lower-Middle peasants!
