Throughout Russian history, the lubok, a national art form sometimes known as the "peoples' pictures," provided a means for communicating ideas to the general population. Norris shows how lubok art expressed patriotic ideas during the five major wars that Russia fought between Napoleon's invasion and World War II. After the initial success, the government intervened and attemped to control the content and themes of the lubki. Interestingly, Norris finds that three elements of Russian identity persisted over the span of imperail history and reappears in WWII lubki: the peasant, the Cossack, and the "Russian spirit."
