Reviews

"Read critically, it can reveal both the traditional assumptions that still underlie much study of the Soviet era and early efforts to question those assumptions. The epilogue offers a very useful survey of interview projects conducted during and after the Soviet era."
---Frederick C. Corney, Slavic Review

Corney, Slavic Review "Living Through the Soviet System is therefore an especially valuable work. This book is an anthology of articles by an international collective of authors, many of whom have participated in generating the new sources. . . . Many of the life histories tell us all as much about the present--that is, the early-to-mid 1990s--as they do about the past. This is however, a strength, given that they capture a pivotal moment in time." --Lynne Viola, Seer
