This book contains the first two Tintin books, "The Land of the Soviets" and "The Congo". They are very interesting as historical works - you can see Herge developing his style - but the subject matter is appalling by modern standards. The depictions of the Russians and the Congolese are ridiculously stereotyped, offensive and old-fashioned, but they are arguably completely representative of the time they were written in.
