'A gripping, unsettling, and highly original book that turns the making of a Soviet socialist-realist classic—Azhaev's Far from Moscow—into a detective story, and sheds as strange and ambiguous a light on the Stalin era, from gulag to Writers'Union, as one could hope for. Lahusen is a disarmingly low-key scholarly virtuoso who performs simultaneously as an archive-based historian, an interpreter of texts (including Azhaev's own self-organized archive), and a gently relentless biographer whose stalking of his prey is reminiscent of Nabokov. The final chilling paragraph typically economical and understated, is a reminder that the author/investigator, too, is a collaborator in the multiple reworkings of Azhaev's text, and of his life, that How Life Writes the Book has so finely analyzed.'—Sheila Fitzpatrick, University of Chicago 'This is a wonderfully original work: a history of a book, a literary analysis of an age, a montage of a life. Lahusen writes with a postmodern sensibility but without the postmodernist jargon.'—Yuri Slezkine, University of California, Berkeley 'Thomas Lahusen has written an imaginative and archivally grounded book that presents the most fascinating picture to date of the literary process that produced canonical works of Socialist Realism and the people who wrote them. How Life Writes the Book is alternatingly chilling and funny as it demonstrates the interpenetration of literary institutions, massive construction projects and the Soviet system of prison camps and slave labor. With this study, as with his earlier Intimacy and Terror, Lahusen continues his own project of revolutionizing our understanding of the Soviet subject and Soviet subjectivity.'—Eric Naiman, University of California, Berkeley 'Lahusen's case study marks a new genre of inquiry into the very nature of socialist realism, a genre which became possible after archives and memory in Russia regained their voice. It shows how life is transformed into Soviet myth.'—Hans G'nther, editor of The Culture of the Stalin Period

The figure of Joseph Stalin has always provoked heated and often polarized debate. The recent declassification of a substantial portion of Stalin's archive has made possible this fundamental new assessment of the Soviet leader. In this groundbreaking 2005 study, leading international experts challenge many assumptions about Stalin from his early life in Georgia to the Cold War years with contributions ranging across the political, economic, social, cultural, ideological and international history of the Stalin era. The volume provides a deeper understanding of the nature of Stalin's power and of the role of ideas in his politics, presenting a more complex and nuanced image of one of the most important leaders of the twentieth century. This study is without precedent in the field of Russian history and will prove invaluable reading for students of Stalin and Stalinism.

The Thaw Generation offers an insider's look at the Soviet dissident movement--the intellectuals who, during the Khrushchev and Brezhnev eras, dared to challenge an oppressive system and demand the rights guaranteed by the Soviet constitution. Fired from their jobs, hunted by the KGB, “tried,” and imprisoned, Alexeyeva and other activists including Andrei Sakharov, Yuri Orlov, Yuli Daniel, and Andrei Sinyavsky, through their dedication and their personal and professional sacrifices, focused international attention on the issue of human rights in the USSR.

In 1932 Josef Stalin abolished all independent artistic organizations in the USSR. From then on the new guiding principle of partiinost, the requirement of absolute allegiance to the Party, gave rise to a unique period in the history of art. Matthew Cullerne Bown's fascinating and often provocative analysis focuses on the art of the Stalin era, from 1932 to 1953, and includes discussion of the pre- and post-Stalin years. The author illuminates the political and social framework of the time and provides a complete expose of Stalinist aesthetics, socialist realism in art and neo-classicism in architecture, the Cult of Personality, art-world debates, and isolationism. The violent imposition of Stalinist culture left Soviet society scarred, and subsequent progressive liberalization in the USSR is now reaching a critical stage. This book is a timely survey of a subject never before treated in depth, and it offers an invaluable background to understanding the art, culture, and society in the Soviet Union today. It also presents a fresh assessment, free from modernist and Cold War dogma, of the aesthetic value of the art of this period. Art under Stalin has a still wider relevance. It is a sympathetic and penetrating study of the predicament of the artist in a totalitarian system, and raises disturbing questions about how an artist can survive under oppressive restrictions and continue to believe in his or her art.
