Editorial Reviews


‘Conscience on Trial is an outstanding glimpse into a fascinating aspect of Soviet history… Kuromiya has provided a valuable and interesting look into the inner workings of the Soviet judicial system in the Stalin era.’

(Kayla Hester)

‘This is an excellent piece of scholarship based on exemplary source criticism that gives a fascinating insight into the workings of the Soviet punitive organs and raises interesting questions about private life and the practice of religion in the Soviet Union.’ (Christopher Gilley)

‘A compelling narrative that sheds light on an otherwise unknown story… It will be read with great profit and much interest by scholars working on the Stalin period and on questions of religious belief and practice in Soviet society.’

(Robert H. Greene)


Conscience on Trial once again confirms Hiroaki Kuromiya as an excellent storyteller, as well as a major authority on the Stalin period known widely for his solid, archival-based work. Kuromiya's lucidly written and highly engaging new book tells the fascinating story of the inner world of Soviet citizens and the workings of the Stalinist repressive apparatus - an interesting and important topic that has received little coverage in the literature. In a manner reminiscent of Carlo Ginzburg's celebrated The Cheese and the Worms, this excellent book unfolds as a human-interest narrative with many elements of mystery.‘ (Serhy Yekelchyk, Department of History, University of Victoria)
