About this item

In the Soviet Union, bribery was a skill with its own practices and culture. Remarkably little attention has been paid to how and why bribery, despite the party’s anticorruption campaigns, became an entrenched presence at all levels of Soviet state and society. Focusing on how and why people chose to give bribes, James Heinzen’s innovative and compelling work offers revealing insights into how the Soviet state and society functioned at the height of Stalin’s dictatorship after World War II.
