about this item

Inspired by the work of Soviet-born Canadian sociologist Zaslavsky (1937-2009), social scientists analyze Eastern Europe, particularly the Soviet societies and their difficult "transition" after the 1989-91 fall of communism. In sections on theory and debate, history and society, and beyond totalitarianism, they consider such aspects as European liberalism in the age of totalitarianism, Stalin the statesman: a historian's notes, from fascism to communism: the history of a conversion, Aleksander Solzhenitsyn and Vasily Grossman: Slavophile and Westernizer against the totalitarian Soviet state, and public memory and the difficulty of overcoming the communist legacy.
