  • “The Year That Changed the World”'
    • Abstract: Ten years ago, Time Magazine published an article marking the 20th anniversary of 1989, remarking that it “truly was one of those years that the world shifted on its pivot.”1 One can easily summarize the evidence. From the perspective of readers of this journal, this was the year when the Soviet Union withdrew in defeat from Afghanistan, held contested elections to the Congress of People’s Deputies, and decided not to intervene in Hungary and then the other satellite states. This last and truly humane decision—perhaps Mikhail Gorbachev’s greatest legacy—enabled the slow-motion and largely nonviolent collapse of the Soviet empire in Eastern Europe. Many of us have enduring memories of these unforgettable months—the ... Read More

  • Erratum
    • Abstract: Tarik Cyril Amar would like to correct any potential misunderstanding in the phrasing of one paragraph in his review essay “Politics, Starvation, and Memory: A Critique of Red Famine,” published in Kritika 20, 1 (2019): 145–69.The sentences “In a similar vein, Red Famine maintains that for the Nazis, Slavs were subhumans, ‘perhaps one level above the Jews but slated for eventual elimination’ as well (328). This is not debatable, but again it is historically misleading” (157) might better have been stated as follows: “Although the Nazis targeted many Slavs with massive violence, the assertion that they slated them for total elimination in the same way as they sought to exterminate the Jews is so misleading as to be ...

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: As I wandered Tashkent’s streets during my dissertation research in 1998, I would furtively peek into the windows of the city’s few remaining tsarist-era houses. I imagined, if I could be transported back a century, what I would ask the “average” Russian settlers who once occupied them. I had heard their voices sporadically in the archives, mediated through police reports and trial transcripts, or sometimes in letters, usually written by scribes. But what stories would they tell me, face-to-face, in their own words' I wanted to hear everyday experiences and encounters from their perspective, to understand their beliefs and feel their emotions. I wanted these people, whose movements and interactions appeared so ... Read More

  • Hunger and Potatoes: The 1933 Famine in Uzbekistan and Changing Foodways
    • Abstract: Why and when did Uzbeks start eating potatoes and tomatoes' It is commonly said in Uzbekistan that these foods were adopted fairly recently, and that they were brought by Russians.1 A food history study can tell us that a product can be known and available, but that does not mean that it will be widely consumed. Oral history interviews conducted with rural Uzbeks from the collectivization generation show links between Uzbekistan’s collectivization-related famine and decisions to taste potatoes for the first time, and then to begin growing them.This article combines findings from oral history interviews with archival sources, making two arguments that emerged as repeated narratives in the stories that elderly Uzbek ...

  • What to Name the Children' Oral Histories of Ethnically Mixed Families
           in Soviet Kazakhstan and Tajikistan
    • Abstract: When Rustam Iskandarov’s son was born in 1984, Rustam, a man of mixed Tajik and Russian descent living in Tajikistan, thought carefully about what to name him. It was important that the child’s first name match the other parts of his name, Rustam explained. A Russian first name would not go well with a Tajik patronynic and surname, and the “wrong” first name could cause lifelong social problems for the boy. Ultimately, Rustam and his wife (a woman of mixed Tajik-Tatar descent) chose the name Timur for their son. Rustam explained their reasoning: “My main concern was to make sure that he would have an easier life. Because, for example, his patronymic is Rustamovich, and his last name is Iskandarov. All right, let’s ... Read More

  • Gender and National Identity in Memories of the Late 20th-Century Soviet
           Theater in Kyrgyzstan
    • Abstract: Jamal Seidakhmatova, a well-known actress, a veteran of Kyrgyz theater and cinema who is still working in her late 70s, said proudly: “They call me ‘The last of the Mohicans.’ I am a movie and theater actress. This March it is going to be 60 years since I worked on my first role in cinema. I am turning 80 this year, but I will not celebrate it. I will celebrate 60 years of my professional life.”1Undoubtedly, she modeled herself after the legendary acting couple Sabira Kümüshalieva and Muratbek Ryskulov, although it was clear that her idol was Kümüshalieva. She continued: “First, I lived in Darkul’s home [Darkul Kuiukova (1919–97), another well-respected actress], one of the ‘daughters of Tököldösh.’ She was my ... Read More

  • Along the Routes of Justice: Judicial Circuit Riding in Western Siberia
           during the Late Imperial Period
    • Abstract: In the 1860s, Russians gained unprecedented freedoms, which were guaranteed by the establishment of an independent judiciary with the capacity to check the tyranny of the autocracy. But, upon challenging the authoritarian regime, the new system of justice quickly found itself in conflict with the government, spurring tsarist lawmakers to make corrections that weakened it.1 In the provinces, judicial reform moved more slowly and underwent further distortions, often due to peculiar local circumstances, and increasingly the natural geographic features of Russia’s vast empire influenced the organization of the new judicial system. It took three decades and the law of 13 May 1896 for the judicial reform of Alexander II ... Read More

  • Writer, Rebel, Soldier, Shaykh: Border Crossers in the Historiography of
           the Modern Caucasus
    • Abstract: For nearly a century and a half, the Caucasus found itself under Russian and Soviet rule, and kavkazovedenie—Caucasology—fit into the rubric of “domestic social sciences” (otechestvennoe obshchestvovedenie). Under one state with a lingua franca in administration and scholarship, the Caucasus thus lent itself to study as a region. Following the breakup of the Soviet Union, however, the emergence of strictly controlled national boundaries, armed conflict, and hermetic academic institutions made it not only more difficult to move around the Caucasus but also to study the region as a whole. Today structural, disciplinary, topographic, ideological, and linguistic hurdles remain too high for most scholars to write ... Read More

  • Stirlitz in Washington' What “Stagnation” Tells Us Now
    • Abstract: How should we feel about the Brezhnev era' The question is hard to answer, because the Soviet “era of stagnation,” the nearly two decades between the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia and the launch of Mikhail Gorbachev’s reforms, remains profoundly entangled with our understanding of the present. As Dina Fainberg and Artemy Kalinovsky write, “the specter of Brezhnev’s stagnation haunts Russian leadership and its relationship with the world” (xix). Both Russians and foreign observers have, they observe, drawn “parallels between Putin’s Russia and Brezhnev’s USSR,” relying on “binary categories that functioned as the central pillars of [the] stagnation narrative in the past, such as oppression/resistance ...

  • Reading, Writing, and Realism in 19th-Century Russia
    • Abstract: For perceptive observers of modernity, from Sigmund Freud to Marshall McLuhan, communications technology and media have served as “marvelous extensions of man,” enabling the acquisition of knowledge, capacities, and experiences by ordinary individuals transformed, in Freud’s unforget-table words, into a “kind of prosthetic God.”1 Even as we have not yet fully processed the implications of the industrial revolution in print and electronic media (radio, cinema, television), we are overwhelmed by a tsunami of digital media that is fundamentally inundating every facet of our experience, from community to cognition. In light of the current upheaval, the media landscape of the past seems delightfully quaint, despite the ... Read More

  • Convicts and Concentration Camps
    • Abstract: At first glance it is not at all clear why the readers of Kritika should be particularly interested in these books. True, Clare Anderson’s edited volume contains a lucid essay by Sarah Badcock and Judith Pallot on convicts and penal colonies in the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, which is an excellent introduction to the subject; otherwise, neither Aidan Forth’s monograph nor the other contributions to Anderson’s volume seem to have anything in particular to say to historians of Russia and Eurasia. Looming over both these books, however, is the question of how far the forms of incarceration developed by liberal European states at home and abroad before World War I were precursors of the camps that came to ...

  • The Other History of Soviet Cinema
    • Abstract: Since the discovery of a Soviet subjectivity by historians working on the Stalin era, film historians have begun to feel the pressure. The “must” of reconceptualization is in the air. As early as 2000, the Locarno Film Festival delved into revision, calling its retrospective “The Other History of Soviet Cinema” and presenting some rarely seen treasures from Gosfilmofond. In 2018, the archive film festival “Il Cinema Ritrovato” billed well-known Soviet films from 1930 to 1937 as a second utopia and a “pre-Thaw.”Emma Widdis and Maria Belodubrovskaya have now rewritten the history of Soviet film under Stalin. Widdis explores the Soviet culture of sensuality, emotionality, and subjectivity in the period of transition ... Read More

  • Unearthing the Holocaust on the Russian Front
    • Abstract: The Nazi penchant for violence never fails to outstrip our collective imagination. Even now, with all we have unearthed and learned, the burden of such knowledge is unfathomable. The details challenge the limits of nightmarish horror: gas chambers; mobile gas vans; open air massacres engulfing millions of innocent Jews, Poles, Roma, and homosexuals, to mention four of the most prominent categories of victims. Yet among educated people who have some idea of the scale of the Holocaust there has long been an unbalanced understanding of how the Nazi plan to exterminate the Jews evolved to engulf Jewish communities throughout Europe. The fate of Anne Frank, a teenage girl who together with members of her family tried to ... Read More

  • Brezhnev’s Memos as a Source
    • Abstract: “1. On the plenaries which were none / 2. Impossible to agree with the state of the note to the plenum—especially with the reduction of the role of the party organs / 1965 – 1929 = 36” (1:38). This is the first entry we find in volume 1 of Brezhnev’s edited “working and daily notes,” dated 13/14 October 1964. It reveals the richness of this source as well as the challenge it poses to historians: Brezhnev’s notes present mostly keywords, rarely entire sentences, and much more information is required to make sense of them. Thus the editors of these three volumes undertook the enormous task of adding footnotes with information on the textual level and endnotes with historical background information. This memo was ...

  • Moscow, Maidan, and the Politics of Russia’s “Glorious
           Past”
    • Abstract: It is a well-established tradition that foreign correspondents write general interest books about the country they are or were reporting on. To get the public’s attention, these books have to be written within a certain genre that prefers a personal narrative instead of a distancing scholarly voice and a personal encounter instead of a nuanced discussion of academic literature or data analysis.
      Authors of such books also have necessarily to build upon clichés, picking up topics quite familiar to the audience they are going to address, as Dina Fainberg reminds us in her book on American and Soviet journalists in the Cold War period.1While reporting on Central and Eastern Europe for The Guardian, Shaun Walker wrote a ...

  • To the Editors
    • Abstract: We are troubled by Victoria Frede’s rather flippant treatment of the lives, tribulations, and historic legacy of Nikolai Charushin, his long-time partner Anna Kuvshinskaia, and their populist revolutionary cohorts—a story which, in our telling, took us from 1851 and the time of the Great Reforms to the perestroika era.1 We propose that the bonds and beliefs these young revolutionaries formed in the 1870s remained steadfast until the end of their lives: a commitment to ethical rationalism, redistributive justice, and participatory democracy (all expressed in the populist vocabulary of that time). After release from exile, many in this cohort came to reject violence and advocate evolutionary change. Yet their goals ... Read More
