Focusing on the years between the Revolution and Stalin's death, the contributors to this volume address a variety of topics, including how political events and social engineering played themselves out at the local level; the construction of Bolshevik identities, including class, gender, ethnicity, and place; the Soviet cultural project; and the hybridization of Soviet history, enrich the understanding of major events and turning points in that history, and provide a context for the highly visible sociopolitical and cultural roles individual Russian provinces began to play after the breakup of the Soviet Union.
Donald J. Raleigh, Pardue Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is the author, editor, or translator of numerous books and articles, including most recently, The Emperors and Empresses of Russia: Rediscovering the Romanovs and Labor Camp Socialism: The Gulag in the Soviet Totalitarian System.
