Este livro põe em nova perspectiva as conturbadas décadas de 50 e 60 no Brasil pelo prisma dos documentos oficiais dos serviços secretos do bloco soviético, que atuaram no país de forma intensa e muitas vezes insuspeita. São relatórios de agentes secretos, planos de operações, recibos de pagamento em dinheiro de colaboradores brasileiros e outras informações sobre a presença ilegal dos países comunistas no Brasil, que não só surpreendem como denunciam atividades atentatórias à segurança nacional. A ousadia dessa infiltração foi tamanha que dela foram alvos os gabinetes presidenciais dos três últimos governos antes do notório 31 de março de 1964.

Rudolf Arnheim is one of this century's most influential thinkers in the visual arts, and perhaps the most lucid and accessible writer on the arts today. From his now-classic book on film theory to his definitive texts on visual perception, from his seminal treatment of Picasso's Guernica to his primary research on the psychology of the creative process; from his lasting influence as a professor at Harvard to the overcrowded lectures at the University of Michigan in the final decade of his teaching career, Arnheim has shaped the discourse of the visual arts like no other individual in this century. The collection reflects on the scope, direction, and impact of Arnheim's work, through his own words as well as those of the contemporaries he influenced. The book includes an impressive array of essays, interviews, and tributes by internationally recognized artists, architects, and scholars, including art historian Vincent Scully, graphic artist Paul Rand, architect Daniel Libeskind, and writers and artists such as Gyorgy Kepes, Dore Ashton, and Sir Ernst Gombrich. The collection is enhanced by visual material from Arnheim's personal collection, which forms a further narrative strand. This volume cuts across a series of disciplines including art history, psychology, architecture, and studio art. Rudolf Arnheim: Revealing Vision will find an appreciative audience among scholars and specialists whose thinking has been influenced by Arnheim, as well as among general readers interested in the visual arts. "This imaginatively conceived and executed collection is a fine tribute to one of the major thinkers of modernism of the twentieth century--someone whose work has deeply influenced generations of artists, art historians, psychologists, and historians and critics of film." --Donald Preziosi, University of California, Los Angeles
