Editorial Reviews

Review

"... a substantial and enlightening compendium of Russian culture from the Soviet era." - Canadian Slavonic Papers "... an unique collection of translations that should be on the bookshelf of everyone interested in the Soviet Union... I especially recommend it for use in the classroom ...This volume is a valuable addition to our field." - Slavic and East European Journal "This imaginative anthology will give the study of Soviet culture a definite boost and may even raise its profile in university courses. The editors should be congratulated for having unearthed so much fascinating material." - Slavonica "This volume samples Russian popular culture from the Revolution to the death of Stalin. Here can be found tales of loyal comrades and self-sacrificing patriots, paeans to industrialization and hard work, subversive jokes and even the occasional bit of (politically charged) humor ... " - Washington Post Book World "... this very useful book makes an important contribution to a long-neglected field." - The Russian Review "This volume is like a dream come true ... this book is a must for scholars with an interest in Russian cultural history and a unique and stimulating teaching aid for students. The editors are to be congratulated on a fine and original achievement." - The Slavonic Review "This massive collection of nearly 500 pages paints a fascinating picture of the propaganda, entertainment, attitudes, reactions- indeed the life blood- of the masses during the Soviet regime... superb ..." - Journal of American Culture

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mark A. Porfirio on April 1, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book does a great job of giving the reader an overall perspective of the Soviet experience through her arts. From the beginning optimistic nationalistic songs, to the later stories of the youth groups (Komsomol) and futuristic views of the USSR, the reader becomes enveloped in the pride the Soviets had for their country and the hope that they had in her. I became very interested in these passages and consequently became somewhat connected to their cause. I gained a lot of respect for the Soviet artists. However, one cannot help but feel a sense of sorrow that the project went wrong; it was, after all, the greatest social experiment in history. I cannot give 5 stars because I would have liked more visual arts; overall, though, an excellent book.
