  • Introduction: Beyond the Sayable: Informal Economic Precursors of the
           Post-Soviet Semiotic Crisis
    • Abstract: In the third decade since the demise of the Soviet Union, the meaning the Soviet way of life had for millions of people in the Union itself and its satellite countries remains a far from fully answered question. This sense of inscrutability keeps being enhanced rather than dismissed as the years roll on. A strong factor for the tenacity of this state of peering through a glass, darkly, has been the often noted and documented nostalgia for Soviet times. As is well known, much of the explanation for longing for the times "before" revolves around perceptions of security, experienced as forever lost.The aim of this special issue is to advance understanding of how this perception of social security formed, was sustained ...

  • Enterprising Empires: Russia and Britain in Eighteenth-Century Eurasia by
           Matthew P. Romaniello (review)
    • Abstract: In Enterprising Empires: Russia and Britain in Eighteenth-Century Eurasia, Matthew Romaniello explores the interlocking commercial histories of Britain and Russia against the backdrop of globalization in the early modern era. Numerous economic and geopolitical circumstances fostered and tightened trade ties between the two countries: Britain's escalating demand for Russian forest goods and naval stores; Russia's direct access to Asian markets along its southern and eastern borders; and Russia's lack of a merchant marine, which increased its dependence on the British commercial fleet for exporting its products. While historians have long studied these trends, few have focused on the human agents whose initiatives ... Read More

  • The Stuff of Soldiers: A History of the Red Army in World War II through
           Objects by Brandon M. Schechter (review)
    • Abstract: In her oral history of Soviet women in World War II, Svetlana Alexievich recounted the story of a woman partisan veteran who brought personal memorabilia for the local history museum to display, among the other usual objects of war. These possessions included a blouse and underwear made of parachute silk. The museum curators, however, rejected these clothes, chuckling "Whatever for' Who needs it' What's so heroic about it'"1Brandon Schechter's The Stuff of Soldiers tells us why these seemingly ordinary things were indeed heroic, as well as much else about the daily lives of Red Army soldiers in the Second World War. This engagingly written history, based on archival sources such as the testimonies contained in the ... Read More

  • The "Success Story" of Private Reindeer Husbandry in Iamal' A Look at
           Herders' Budgets 30 Years After
    • Abstract: Interest in the economy of the individual household and the economic analysis of families as production/consumption units emerged in the late 1960s together with the so-called New Home Economics School established by Nobel Prize winner Gray Becker.1 This interest has grown in recent years together with recognition of the link between the economy of the family/household and macroeconomic processes.2 Since the 1990s, studies of household budgets by means of household surveys have become part of the standard economic monitoring toolkit applied regularly to various countries and sectors of society.3In social anthropology, interest in the household economy has existed for decades.4 Although there have been attempts to ...

  • The "Magic Tablecloth": Personal Property and Sovkhoism in Soviet and
           Post-Soviet Russia
    • Abstract: I take my cue from Sheila Fitzpatrick's classic Everyday Stalinism.2 Its fourth chapter is titled "The Magic Tablecloth." It begins like this:One facet of "making fairy tales come true" was particularly dear to Soviet citizens: the promise that socialism would bring abundance. This was literally an excursion into the world of Russian fairy tales, whose furniture included a Magic Tablecloth (skatert´-samobranka) that, when laid, produced an extravagant array of food and drink of its own accord. Perhaps the hope of future abundance made the scarcity of the present easier to bear. In the mid-1930s, in any case, food, drink, and consumer goods came to be celebrated with a fervor that even Madison Avenue might have ... Read More

  • Post-Soviet Reindeer Herders: Between Family and Collective Herding
    • Abstract: Russia has always been the largest reindeer-herding nation of the world. More than half of the total world population of (semi)domesticated reindeer lives in Russia1 and most of the world's reindeer herders have Russian citizenship. Although in purely economic terms reindeer herding does not bring large revenues either to the herders themselves or to the state,2 its cultural value is great. It forms the basis of economic well-being, a distinct way of life, and the very cultural identity for many indigenous peoples of Russia.3 This is true even though less than half of the people who claim indigenous identity are directly involved in reindeer herding these days. It is worth adding, however, that in contrast to such ... Read More

  • Siberian Private Reindeer Herders and the Market: The Case of Iamal
    • Abstract: The Nenets reindeer herders of Western Siberia (Iamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug) have recently been attracting a great deal of academic attention both in Russia and in the West. This is explained, on the one hand, by the idea popularized by some already classic works on the region1 that the Nenets are reindeer pastoralists par excellence, who have managed to retain their traditional economy and way of life better than any other northern people.2 Numerous authors have noted the remarkable flexibility and resilience of the Nenets culture and economy, which have allowed them to maintain their way of life through Soviet and post-Soviet times.3 Furthermore, this is the only region of the Arctic (and one of the very rare ...

  • Private-in-the-Collective: Comparing the History and Legacy of Sovkhoism
           in Poland and Germany
    • Abstract: The aim of this article is to contribute to a more nuanced understanding of sovkhoism—provisionally defined as the habitual practice of seeking personal economic gain under the roof of a state farm or collective farm, and by the informal use of the farm's resources. To this end I analyze two areas in direct proximity and with a shared history before 1945, but exposed thereafter to markedly different trends in agriculture. Both areas are located in Pomerania (Pommern/Pomorze) and nowadays belong to northeast Germany and northwest Poland, respectively. In line with the scope of the journal and this special issue, regional comparison is the main task here; the insights will hopefully help facilitate future theoretical ... Read More

  • The Birth of the Russian Bear' The Bear Symbol in the Satirical
           Journals of the Russian Revolution of 1905
    • Abstract: The "Russian bear" is increasingly becoming a prominent character in the discourse of international relations. The metaphor of Russia as a bear has acquired a visual embodiment in cartoons; it is used not only by journalists but also by representatives from the expert community, by politicians and statesmen, that is, the people who make, adopt, and implement foreign policy decisions. For instance, the 2016 report of the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies on "Russian propaganda in Europe" was entitled "The Bear in Sheep's Clothing";1 and in that same yeaar, during the televised election debates, US vice-presidential candidate Michael Pence claimed that there is an old proverb saying "The Russian bear never ...

  • Notes on the Contributors
    • Abstract: J. Otto Habeck was appointed professor at the Institute for Social and Cultural Anthropology, Universität Hamburg, in 2014. Earlier (2003–14), he was coordinator of the Siberian Studies Center at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle (Germany). His research interests comprise different aspects of agriculture and animal husbandry in socialist and postsocialist Eurasia (nomadism, state-induced transition to sedentary life, land use in permafrost areas). He combines these topics with research on changes in livelihoods and lifestyles in postsocialist settings. Recently (2016–18) he has conducted field research on socialist agricultural enterprises in the Polish-German border area near Szczecin. He ... Read More
