A Time to Live (Russian Cross Book 6)

by Alexander Lapin

A Time to Live – this is the title of the final, sixth book of the novel Russian cross. The original novel was conceived as a five-volume edition, and with characters I planned to leave at the turn of the century. But too much remained uncertain in the fate of each character and the internal logic of the narration required to bring the line of characters’ lives before the moment of awareness of each of them of its purpose.No, they do not achieve complete peace and well-being. Life continues to bring them new difficulties that require overcoming, but each of the main characters of the novel in the final comes to understand the need to be here and now, in this place, to do this business, with these people, to love exactly this person and raise common children.And then, despite the diffic...

Proletarian Peasants: The Revolution of 1905 in Russia's Southwest

by Robert Edelman

In this book, conceived and written for the general reader as well as the specialist, Robert Edelman uses a case study of peasant behavior during a particular revolutionary situation to make an important contribution to one of the major debates in contemporary peasant studies. Edelman's subject is the peasantry of the right-bank Ukraine, and he uses local and regional archives seldom available to Western scholars to give a detailed picture of the ways in which the inhabitants of one of Russia’s most advanced agrarian regions expressed their discontent during the years 1905–1907. By the 1890s, the landlords of Russia’s Southwest had organized a highly successful capitalist form of agriculture, and Edelman demonstrates that their peasants responded to these dramatic economic changes by...

Stalin’s Constitution (Open Access): Soviet Participatory Politics and the Discussion of the 1936 Draft Constitution (Routledge Studies in Modern European History)

by Samantha Lomb

Upon its adoption in December 1936, Soviet leaders hailed the new so-called Stalin Constitution as the most democratic in the world. Scholars have long scoffed at this claim, noting that the mass repression of 1937–1938 that followed rendered it a hollow document. This study does not address these competing claims, but rather focuses on the six-month long popular discussion of the draft Constitution, which preceded its formal adoption in December 1936. Drawing on rich archival sources, this book uses the discussion of the draft 1936 Constitution to examine discourse between the central state leadership and citizens about the new Soviet social contract, which delineated the roles the state and citizens should play in developing socialism. For the central leadership, mobilizing its citizen...

Rewolucja: Russian Poland, 1904–1907

by Robert E. Blobaum

The revolution of 1905 in the Russian-ruled Kingdom of Poland marked the consolidation of major new influences on the political scene. As he examines the emergence of a mass political culture in Poland, Robert E. Blobaum offers the first history in any Western language of this watershed period. Drawing on extensive archival research to explore the history of Poland's revolutionary upheavals, Blobaum departs from traditional interpretations of these events as peripheral to an essentially Russian movement that reached a climax in the Russian Revolution of 1917. He demonstrates that, although Polish independence was not formally recognized until after World War I, the social and political conditions necessary for nationhood were established in the years around 1905....

Russian Formalism: A Metapoetics

by Peter Steiner

Russian Formalism, one of the twentieth century's most important movements in literary criticism, has received far less attention than most of its rivals. Examining Formalism in light of more recent developments in literary theory, Peter Steiner here offers the most comprehensive critique of Formalism to date. Steiner studies the work of the Formalists in terms of the major tropes that characterized their thought. He first considers those theorists who viewed a literary work as a mechanism, an organism, or a system. He then turns to those who sought to reduce literature to its most basic element—language—and who consequently replaced poetics with linguistics. Throughout, Steiner elucidates the basic principles of the Formalists and explores their contributions to the study of poetics, ...

The End of the Third Reich: A New English Translation

by Vasily Chuikov

Vasily Chuikov was there at the end, every soldier’s desire. This account of the operations of his army on the Eastern Front from the summer of 1944 until the surrender of Germany is not as dramatic as his history of Stalingrad. As Chuikov himself said, Stalingrad was ‘idiosyncratic.’ No one had ever seen the like and, with a bit of luck, no one will ever see the like again.This book relates many stories, but also contains a fair amount of military science. If the small-town geography of Poland and Ukraine becomes too tedious, skim it.This book can educate those who do not fully appreciate the sacrifice made by Red Army troops in World War II. Russians of the Soviet period almost always failed in their appeals for understanding by painting themselves as universally courageous, kind, ...

The Crimean War: Volume II An English Translation

by Yevgeny Tarle

Yevgeny Tarle was a historian most interested in diplomacy. In Volume I of this work, he devoted a great many pages to the failure of that diplomacy to avoid the Crimean War. Indeed, he makes a convincing argument that the diplomacy was not intended to avoid war, but rather to assign blame. The two most influential actors, Tsar Nicholas I and Emperor Napoleon III, wanted war for their own purposes.After the abortive Russian Danubian campaign of 1853-54, the Western powers made it abundantly clear that the integrity of the Ottoman Empire was not their sole concern. French and British troops were first landed in parts of Greece and Bulgaria then under the control of the Turks, but it soon became clear that there would be no encounter there with the withdrawing Russian forces. It was decided ...

Revolutionary Acts: Amateur Theater and the Soviet State, 1917-1938

by Lynn Mally

During the Russian Revolution and Civil War, amateur theater groups sprang up in cities across the country. Workers, peasants, students, soldiers, and sailors provided entertainment ranging from improvisations to gymnastics and from propaganda sketches to the plays of Chekhov. In Revolutionary Acts, Lynn Mally reconstructs the history of the amateur stage in Soviet Russia from 1917 to the height of the Stalinist purges. Her book illustrates in fascinating detail how Soviet culture was transformed during the new regime's first two decades in power.Of all the arts, theater had a special appeal for mass audiences in Russia, and with the coming of the revolution it took on an important role in the dissemination of the new socialist culture. Mally's analysis of amateur theater as a space where ...

Stalingrad Battle of the Century: An English Translation

by Vasily Chuikov

Vasily Chuikov offers an authoritative history of the Battle of Stalingrad. After all, he was there. Chuikov's account of the battle was first published in 1962. That book was translated into English and published in the 1965 book, The Battle for Stalingrad. This book, Stalingrad: Battle of the Century, is a translation of Chuikov's 1975 edition, a very different work.There is no doubt that Stalingrad was a turning point in World War II. It was, perhaps, a turning point in human history. Adolf Hitler's psychopathic obsession with conquering the stronghold on the Volga made this an event of more than military significance. Chuikov himself wrote that Stalingrad was 'an objective at which all strategic, tactical, political and aspirational goals coalesced.' Indeed. It was the beginning of the...
