  • Within and Beyond the Ivory Tower: Worlds without Nationalist Blinders
    • Abstract: George Orwell once remarked: “Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred and always stronger than internationalism.”1 A few years ago, such a dismissal of internationalism, even by such a prescient mind, might have seemed too quick. Now, however, one has to wonder. Nationalist and populist sympathies are clearly resurgent the world over, with last fall’s US presidential election being the most obvious recent case in point. One of the predictable consequences of this nationalist uptick is a questioning of all things international—networks, institutions, allegiances, points of view. As such, journals like our own find themselves very much in the midst of the vortex. Kritika was founded in 2000 with two primary ... Read More

  • The “East” as a Category of Bolshevik Ideology and Comintern
           Administration: The Arab Section of the Communist University of the
           Toilers of the East
    • Abstract: The Third International (or Comintern) transformed the dynamics of anticolonial resistance around the world by linking communist activists in various countries with Moscow. As one scholar of postcolonialism put it, “for the first time, anti-colonial struggles could be articulated within a wider framework and, more importantly, could look to a major world power for organizational, material and military support.”1 The scholarship focusing on the transnational exchanges resulting from this support, however, has largely failed to take into account notions of space as either an object or a problem. As Brigitte Studer has argued, the tendency to treat space as a given, or as a mere fact, has led many scholars to confine ... Read More

  • Soviet Orientalism across Borders: Documentary Film for the Turkish
           Republic
    • Abstract: In the early 1930s, Ankara’s requests for productions about Turkey created a dilemma for Soviet filmmakers.1 How could a single propaganda film satisfy two governments with conflicting ideologies? Moscow knew that Communists languished in Turkish jails, and the Turkish military had already blocked screenings of Sergei Eisenstein’s Bronenosets Potemkin (Battleship Potemkin).2 Yet Mustafa Kemal (Atatürk) and many of his supporters sympathized with elements of the Soviet project, and their proposition was intriguing.3 Ultimately, film as a revolutionary tool brought representatives of the Turkish and Soviet states together, and their joint cinematographic endeavors help explain similarities in practices across state ...

  • Indian Leftist Writers of the 1930s Maneuver among India, London, and
           Moscow: The Case of Mulk Raj Anand and His Patron Ralph Fox
    • Abstract: The framework for this article is the dynamic of what Kris Manjapra has called in his article “Communist Internationalism and Transcolonial Recognition,” in the collection Cosmopolitan Thought Zones, “the socialist global ecumene,” or more specifically of the “transcolonial ecumene” formed within it. Manjapra means by this term an “ecumene” in the modern sense of a far-flung or world wide community of people committed to a single cause and engaged in discussions, lobbying, and writing aimed at working toward a common program, at generating a common discourse. In Manjapra’s somewhat idealized account, this ecumene involves not relations between powerful centers and their dependencies but rather lateral connections ... Read More

  • Communist Internationals
    • Abstract: In the heady days of 1848, Marx and Engels told us that the nation had started to outlive its usefulness. “The Communists are … reproached with desiring to abolish countries and nationalities,” they wrote in the Manifesto. The trick with abolishing existing national frameworks, however, was that most people, Marx and Engels contended, had never really known any benefits from belonging to a nation in the first place, having been toyed with by the bourgeoisie who sought only their obedience and their votes. “The working men have no country,” they reasoned. “You cannot take from them what they have not got.”1 So began the remarkable drive to build a new world order on a series of absences: an end to private property ...

    • Abstract: In December 1564, without explanation, Ivan IV (Ivan the Terrible, 1533–84) left Moscow with his wife, sons, treasury, and the religious treasures of the city for an undisclosed location. He wound up at Aleksandrovskaia Sloboda, a royal hunting retreat, from which he sent epistles to Moscow informing the elite and the populace that he had abdicated the throne. When those groups petitioned him to return to Moscow, he agreed upon the condition that he could establish the oprichnina, a private appanage, state-within-a-state, under his sole authority. The elite and commons acquiesced to Ivan’s demand. The oprichnina eventually became the instrument by which Ivan imposed mass terror on Muscovite society. It also remains ... Read More

  • Enemy Films on Soviet Screens: Trophy Films during the Early Cold War,
           1947–52
    • Abstract: The Soviet Union fought a cultural war on two fronts during the final years of Stalin’s leadership. The first front faced inward against the legacy of the Great Patriotic War and how it was won, against the effects of wartime liberalization and fraternization with the West. The second front faced outward against the infiltration of Western culture in the context of the emerging Cold War. Among the key weapons wielded by the Soviet regime were intensified censorship, administrative centralization, and a series of political campaigns—the Zhdanovshchina, anti-kowtowing (nizkopoklonstvo) to the West, and anticosmopolitanism—intended to purge Soviet artistic and intellectual life of cultural heterodoxy or the “alien” ...

  • Writing Imperial Lives: Biography, Autobiography, and Microhistory
    • Abstract: Professional historians have, at best, mixed feelings about biography.1 Suffused with all the worst excesses of great-man theories of history, and at times characterized by an unseemly closeness between author and subject, biographies, in their stereotyped form, are holiday presents from well-meaning relatives, not something a serious scholar writes.2 Yet we keep coming back to the individual life as a promising anchor for our projects. There are sound reasons, both methodological and affective, for doing so. After all, that biography can be bad history does not mean that it has to be; biography, the historian Lois Banner observes, overlaps significantly with social and cultural history, and there is no prima facie ...

  • Russian Literature on the Shoah: New Approaches and Contexts
    • Abstract: In the past few years, several books have appeared, almost simultaneously, about artistic representations of the Shoah in Soviet literature and culture. The works reviewed here, along with a few other recent books devoted to the same subject, constitute a true intellectual breakthrough.1 In many respects, they reexamine the view of Soviet literature on the Holocaust and allow it to be put in the general context of Holocaust studies.The history of the Holocaust, or Shoah, became a subject of study in First World countries in the 1960s—after the trials of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem and of Nazi judges and other war criminals in Germany.2 In the 1970s, the Shoah and Jewish history in the period of World War II began ...

  • A Bird’s Eye View of Soviet and World Communism
    • Abstract: These two volumes both attempt to take stock of the state of the historical field with respect to the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) as well as of international communism. Though a host of monographs has been dedicated to the history of various aspects of the Communist Party, a synthetic survey has not been written since the 1960s.1 The situation is different when it comes to surveys of the history of the Soviet Union, and the number of German-language works is especially large.2 Histories of international communism have become a cottage industry in Oxford, which recently produced three monographs within a short space of time.3 The currently available Handbook, edited by Stephen A. Smith, a senior ... Read More

  • Imperial Russia’s Civil Society, 1750–1917
    • Abstract: The two works under review—a compilation describing self-organization of society in imperial Russia from the 18th century through the beginning of the 20th century, which Anastasiia Tumanova has edited and to which she contributes four chapters, and Tumanova’s monograph on Russian society during World War I—determine the strength and liveliness of civil society in imperial Russia. These works leave no doubt that the still influential view of pre-Soviet Russia as an agrarian backwater, whose populace was devoid of initiative and cowed by a capricious, authoritarian government, and the correlative theory that political repression precipitated the revolutions of 1917 must both be relegated to the dustbin. The ... Read More

  • Ivan Pavlov and the Moral Physiology of Self
    • Abstract: In many respects, Daniel Todes’s new book serves as a shining example of an academic biography. He makes use of a great number of previously unknown archival materials to put forth a history of the scientific research of Ivan Petrovich Pavlov. This research would earn Pavlov the 1904 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine and eventually turn his name into a symbol of rational control of the human psyche. By using these new archival sources, Todes allows his readers to better imagine not only Pavlov but also an entire generation of educated Russians.This is especially true for the first two sections of the book, “The Seminarian Chooses Science, 1849–1875” and “The Wilderness Years, 1875–1890.” Pavlov’s attraction to ...

  • Youth Cultures in Eastern Europe
    • Abstract: Children and youth, their social roles and relevance for politics, and their education and socialization in modern societies are recently undergoing a huge increase of interest in both media and research.1 The book under review takes up some of these issues and focuses on a hitherto rather neglected region by asking what is going on with East European youth. Why is there no upheaval against the establishment, against parents and the government, against growing inequality, unemployment, omnipresent nationalism, and discrimination? Why do Russian teenagers admire the authoritarian, reactionary regime headed by Vladimir Putin?2 In (Western) discourses, youth is always connected with the new, the fresh, the innovative. ...

  • Stalinist Purges during and after World War II as Retribution
    • Abstract: The subtitle of Vanessa Voisin’s book—l’épuration soviétique—more conventionally would be translated as “the Soviet purge.” However, in French scholarship, the term épuration is used both in reference to Lenin- and Stalin-era purges and to the “purification” of European societies in the aftermath of World War II and Nazi occupation. It is also close in meaning to the word “retribution” that has been used in English-language publications in reference to the post–World War II quest for justice and punishment of collaborators and war criminals, which occurred in liberated territories all over Europe, sometimes in the form of spontaneous popular violence, sometimes presided over by the revamped judiciary.1 The ...

  • Thomas Barrett (1960–2016)
    • Abstract: On 3 May 2016, our field lost one of its most creative and beloved practitioners. At the young age of 55, Thomas Barrett succumbed to multiple myeloma, leaving behind his wife, Liisa Franzén, and two children. Those who knew him were blessed by that acquaintance. Those who read his work were the beneficiaries of his imagination and curiosity. He was a fine scholar and a iarkaia lichnost´—in the best sense of that term.With a BS from the University of Virginia in 1982, Barrett later matriculated at Georgetown University for graduate studies and in 1997 completed a PhD thesis on the Terek Cossacks under the guidance of the inimitable Richard Stites. By that time, he was already a visiting instructor at St. Mary’s ... Read More
