  • An Interview with Jan Plamper: On the History of Emotions
    • Abstract: Jan Plamper, Professor of History at Goldsmiths, University of London, was among the first scholars in Soviet and Russian history to engage the burgeoning field of the history of emotions. Trained in history at Brandeis University and the University of California, Berkeley, Plamper is perhaps best known for The Stalin Cult: A Study in the Alchemy of Power (2012), a book that grew out of his PhD dissertation.1 His first forays into the history of emotions began around 2003, with a project, still ongoing, about fear among soldiers in World War I. In those years, Plamper helped organize a series of conferences and conference panels dedicated to the history of emotions, resulting in three collective ... Read More

  • Proof of Sincere Love for the Tsar: Popular Monarchism in the Age of Peter
           the Great
    • Abstract: It is a commonplace among historians that subjects in tsarist Russia held a high regard for the power of the tsar.1 This phenomenon, frequently referred to as “naive monarchism,”2 contends that commoners (i.e., peasants, lower-class townspeople, Cossacks) revered the ruler in their own distinct way, contrasting the image of the “good” tsar with that of his “wicked” boyars and counselors, or, in extreme cases, the image of a “good” tsar with his opposite, a false or “bad” tsar.3 Indeed, many declarations to this effect from loyal subjects of the tsar have survived to this day. However, from time to time, scholars have voiced doubts about the sincerity of these pronouncements. For instance, the ... Read More

  • Khoziaistvo and Khoziaeva: The Properties and Proprietors of the Red Army,
           1941–45
    • Abstract: In his epic novel about the Great Patriotic War, Zhivye i mertvye (The Living and the Dead), the war correspondent Konstantin Simonov reflected on the paradoxical rise of a previously civilian concept with dubious connections to socialism in the ranks of the Red Army. Simonov found the word khoziaistvo had come into vogue, and yet this was a slippery term, ranging from a colloquial expression for male genitalia to the national economy (narodnoe khoziaistvo).1 Often translated as economy, housekeeping, or farm, khoziaistvo, which in some contexts sounded natural in a socialist state, has close ties with khoziain (master, proprietor, boss; plural khoziaeva), a much more problematic understanding for Marxists.2 ...

  • Belongings: People and Possessions in the Armenian Repatriations,
           1945–49
    • Abstract: On 9 July 1947, the Pobeda docked in Batumi carrying 2,509 items of hand baggage and 2,548 items of hold baggage. It was followed a few weeks later by the Chukotka, which carried another 2,700 items of hand baggage and a further 3,408 items of hold baggage.1 The owners of this cargo were diaspora Armenians from communities in Greece and the Middle East who had responded to a Soviet invitation to repatriate to their “homeland,” Soviet Armenia. By the time the scheme came to an abrupt end in 1949, almost 90,000 Armenians had gathered up their belongings and embarked on similar voyages toward the republic.2 The arrival of the Pobeda and the Chukotka in the USSR occurred against a backdrop of postwar ...

  • Burden or Allies': Third World Students and Internationalist Duty
           through Soviet Eyes
    • Abstract: At the 22nd Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) in October 1961, Nikita Khrushchev stated, “the CPSU considers the alliance with peoples that have cast off the colonial yoke as one of the cornerstones of its international policy.” He added, “our party deems it its internationalist duty to help peoples that are on the way to gaining and consolidating their national independence, all peoples fighting for the abolition of the colonial system.”1 From the mid-1950s onward, alliances with Third World countries became a major aim of the Soviet Union.

  • Cushy Work, Backbreaking Leisure: Late Soviet Work Ethics Reconsidered
    • Abstract: In thinking about Soviet work attitudes, the emerging picture is relatively simple. Alexander Zinoviev, a troubled dissident, summarized the Soviet work ethic as “Communist society is a society of bad workers.”1 Soviet “cavalier attitudes toward work” entered the political discourse as a never-ending problem and the popular culture as a constant joke.2 Some of those jokes about the notorious Soviet work ethic are still told today, most famously: “we pretend to work, and they pretend to pay us.” Arkadii Raikin (1911–87), a popular actor and comedian, mocked the Soviet work ethic in a number of sketches. In one such sketch produced for Soviet television a dentist, a shop assistant, and a repairman sneak away ... Read More

  • Before and after the End of the World: Rethinking the Soviet Collapse
    • Abstract: It is the unicorn subject of East European history: the end of the Soviet Union. Its synchronic and diachronic complexities are tremendous, its impact on world history gigantic. Contemporary historians still approach it with caution and warily. They do so to an extent that even separates the field as a whole. Specialists in the field consider themselves to be specialists in Soviet or post-Soviet studies. This is not the result of in-depth analyses of the Soviet collapse. To the contrary, we do so because we have not dealt enough with the transitional period around the end of the Soviet Union. In recent years, contemporary historians and social scientists have continuously asked why the Soviet ... Read More

  • Global Hajj and the Russian State
    • Abstract: In the second half of the 19th and the early 20th centuries, the annual pilgrimage of Muslims to Mecca underwent a dramatic transformation and became characterized by rapid mass mobility and growing European involvement. Scholars explain this change by pointing to global technological advances in transportation and intensified European imperial expansion into the Muslim world. Tsarist Russia was no exception to these developments. How did Russian authorities deal with the increased traffic of Muslim pilgrims between the Russian Empire and Arabia' For specialists, this question is not entirely new. Historians have written archivally based studies of Russian policies toward the hajj and paid attention to a ... Read More

  • The “Radiofication” of the Soviet Union
    • Abstract: Anyone who has ever traveled to the Soviet Union and the Russian Federation is used to the more or less steadily playing radio in the kitchen. After World War II, radio became the most popular background medium of industrialized countries. Despite radio’s global impact, our knowledge about its history is very uneven from a geographical standpoint. The trajectory of radio historiography after the mid-1990s went from a national focus on radio as a central agent in building national communities to the exploration of the complex transnational interdependencies that not least included questions of Americanization and of “the war of the airwaves” after 1945.1 In his new book, the British historian ...

  • Soviet Georgians between Tbilisi and Moscow
    • Abstract: Tens of millions of Soviet citizens lived among a national group to which they did not belong. Upheaval resulting from war, revolution, aggressive industrialization drives, and forced migrations resulted in significant population mixing. Erik Scott, the author of a new book on Georgians living within Russia, reminds us just what a key role various diasporas played in the formation and development of the Soviet Union. Scott stresses: “The Soviet Union was not simply a federation of nationalities confined to titular republics. Instead, it was an empire of mobile diasporas that transcended the borders of the republics, intermixed, and helped construct a truly multiethnic society” (3). To examine this process ... Read More

  • Children, Childhood, and Stalinism
    • Abstract: The field of children’s history in Russia and the Soviet Union cannot compete with the extraordinary number of books and articles in British and American historical childhood studies. Still, an increasing number of historians have lately been fascinated with the topic. In the field of Soviet history, the interest in childhood studies developed chronologically. First, scholars mostly focused on the revolutionary years and the upheavals of the Civil War.1 Now a new wave of studies has appeared, including articles, dissertations, and monographs that deal with childhood in the years of Stalinism. Many of them focus on the period of the Great Terror and World War II. The three new volumes under review here all ... Read More

  • Distant and Present Voices from the Soviet Gulag
    • Abstract: It seems inappropriate to use the words “Gulag” and “beautiful” together, but two new Russian-language volumes addressing aspects of Gulag history are indeed beautiful. Printed on heavy stock and lavishly illustrated, these two works pull in readers with their visuals and hold them with their emotional texts. Anna Artem´eva and Elena Racheva—a photographer and journalist, respectively, for Novaia gazeta—have put together a collection of interviews and stunning contemporary portraits of persons whose lives were connected to the Gulag. Meanwhile, a team from the International Memorial Society’s archive and museum has compiled a volume of letters from imprisoned fathers to their children. Examined together ... Read More

  • Clean Sweep
    • Abstract: The paradox at the center of Amar’s study is, in fact, the elephant that stands triumphantly in the main square of countless East European cities: that the combined efforts of the German occupiers of World War II and the Soviets who came in their wake accomplished what local nationalists had dreamed of since the late 19th century—ethnic homogeneity. This was obviously not the goal of either great power: the Germans sought to transform these lands into an Aryan “living space,” while Soviet power claimed for five decades to have made them into a socialist utopia, where old-hat ideas about race, nation, and religion no longer mattered. It was also not the goal of those other nationalists who lost out, such as ... Read More
